    I've recently built a new computer last week and not been able to get my new NEC DVD-RW 4750A drive to work.

    When i put a disk in the drive it will try to read the disc (little cd icon comes up next to the cursor) but nothing will happen??

    I have checked the basics... that the cables are secure and that the jumper settings are correct ( DVDRW set as master and my old CDRW as slave) and that the bios settings are also the same.

    I've also tried disconnecting and uninstalling the drivers but with no hope.

    Maybe its a driver problem but i cant seem to find an updated driver anywhere.

    I was just coming on to ask the same sort of question, mine was that it won't burn DVD's because it's showing up as DVD-RAM, but i have no idea how to change it.

    Mine burns CD's fine and reads DVD's no probs, it just can't write to DVD!!

    Sorry if you were hopeing for an answer from me.

    ALL DVD writers that support DVD Ram will show as DVD Ram in windows.
    That has nothing to do with NOT being able to burn DVDs.
    You have to have software installed for burining DVDs as windows does not have that built in.
