20 Most Recent NEC ND-3550A DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner Questions & Answers


My dvd player will play music and movies ,but will


First, you need to make sure that the disc is empty.

Second, try to re-install the driver of your player/writer. And that should fix the problem.

Good luck!

Trying to burn music and video.prgram tells me

Use Ctrl-Alt-Del and use 'Task Manager': - Under the 'Applications' tab, you will find all the 'application' that are runnning. - Under the 'Processes' tab, you will find any processes that is running and if you sort the 'CPU' column by clicking on it, it will show any processes that is grabbing your computer resources.
In your case, I would suspect that you have 'AUTOPLAY' enabled and each time you insert a Music or DVD movies, it is trying to run a program like Media Player or DIVX player: if prompted, just tell your machine to do nothing or go into Windows Explorer.
Hope it helps.

No upper and lower filters visible in registry

boot your computer into the bios and check to see if the drive shows there , if it does then dissconected the drive ( with power off ) and reboot the computer , let it fully boot , then turn off and reconnect the drive and windows should pick it up

My ND 3550a drive stopped working..

itachihatake --

If your drive was able to recognize a disk before, but now has stopped... POSSIBLE solution... (don't shoot the messenger on this one, lol!)

I'm sure you have tried, but have you cleaned your optics lately?
Using a Q-tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol, and GENTLY rotate the swab across the lens, rotating it in the opposite direction you are wiping. This should "lift" any dust or grime from the lens. I would also clean the tray with a soft lint-free cloth (using an air-can just moves the dirt around, doesn't solve the problem)

If it is a new drive, try uninstall from Device Manager, reboot2.gif... allow Windows to discover new hardware, allow windows instlal a generic driver, and then update your driver via your install disk...

Hope this helps!

Anytime I switch on my NEC laptop, it takes time to load and when it does. It turns gray with bios setup options

Hi, Please place the laptop into safe mode and run a virus scan within safe mode to ensure your computer does not have any unwanted threats that might lead to the issue that you're currently experiencing. Thank you.

I can not play movies

AMR (Adaptive Multi Rate) is common audio file format for mobile devices like mobile phones, laptops, portable recorders.. etc.

in fact totem movie player can't play any amr files (files encoded in amr codec) by itself. Totem Player depends on Gstreamer libs, which haves necessary media handling components .

from your post its not clear that whether your totem can't play movie files from the very beginning or just you can not play movies recently.

your totem player may lacks Gstreamer library files or somehow your Gstreamer libs got corrupted recently.
Reinstalling Gstreamer Library file may help you.

you can find latest source version of Gstreamer on this page
(more detailed download of Gstreamer can be found on http://openports.se/multimedia/gstreamer-0.10 )

Why my nec monitor 19" gets off after 5 or 10 minutes and along with their color doesn't working when I do select auto option

What is your power and energy saver settings at? Tap windows key and start typing power sl and power and sleep settings should be the first choice. If its not obvious from there, scroll down and or click additional power settings. And the time out reason should be listed and be changable from there.

I have a NEC Multisync p462 lcd display monitor... I need to know how to display the monitor in portrait format (monitor on its side)

what is it hooked up to? If a windows computer you can quickly do this by holding down 3 keys at once. Ctrl + Alt + choose an arrow key. Tip if your doing this on dual display, what ever screen your mouse last clicked on will be changed when you do this. Ctrl + Alt + left arrow or right arrow depending on orientation desired.

How add a NEC Multisync 70GX monitor to my PC win10

connect it to computer and power source and then right click anywhere on desktop. choose display settings. May need to scroll down in your display settings, but windows 10 will automatically detect additional displays from that screen. Then you can choose extend or duplicate and choose primary and resolution.
