Easy Note W3332 BIOS shows NEC DVD + RW ND-6650A; does not play DVD's

I reinstalled Danish WinXp Home with English Win XPPro sp2 and installed ALL the device drivers from the Packard Bell support site for this model.

After flashing the bios ver1.5 the DVD player only plays CD's. I have Win Media Player, VLC, Alcohol 120% installed to name a few DVD players and the system settings show the DVD player by the same name the BIOS shows.
Whenever a DVD is inserted into the drive bay it makes a lot of noise and the software just hangs up or shows a totally empty drive.

Do I need to edit the Registry? Or do I need to reflash the bios to the old version? How do I download the old BIOS?
I pray this site has intelligent help with psychic ability when needed.
Blessings,
Chetanji

You will have to go to the manufacturer of the dvd player itself. In your device manager, find the maker and model number of the dvd drive. Go to that company's site and look under support. There you can usually find the bios updates for every model. Flash the bios on the dvd drive. This is for the dvd drive, not the motherboard. This should fix any problem you have with the drive being recognized as what it actually is. Hopes this helps!

My burner will not burn cd's anymore. It still plays cd's fine as well as play and burn dvd's fine. I see no errors in hardware setup. It is a nec dvd +- RW ND 6650A that came with my Dell Inspiron E1705.


The CD Burner / Player / DVD Burner are all different heads. If the Dell Inspiron E1705 is an older model it is most likely you have reached the end of it's usable life for the CD burner part. If it is new the CD burner is most likely defective and hopefully warrantied. Otherwise these CD/DVD units can be replaced relatively inexpensively (as compared to buying a new laptop).
