For some months i'm the happy owner of a Nec1100a, but since a week i got a weird problem.
Windows XP keeps telling me the DVD+R writer is a CD player. It's also impossible to select the writer in Nero.
I already formatted my harddisk, and reinstalled xp, but that didn't seem to help
Since i got problem i have been able to burn a CD with discjuggler, but i want to burn with nero!
Someone knows what's wrong here?

Is this a Dell system? If so, did the drive come with the Dell system? When you re-installed were you asked for the location of the device drivers?
It isn't a dell
winXP did install the default drivers when i re-installed it. It didn't even ask me where to get the drivers from
Have you tried manualing installing the drivers for the drive. That may make a difference. Windows default drivers are probably not problem. Is your bios recognizing the right drive spec. Post back if this doesn't help.
What type of PC is it? The only drivers that are involved would be for the ide chipset, there is no NEC 1100 driver as it is a standard ATAPI device. I would find out the chipset and get the lastest drivers installed, i.e. Hyperion for VIA and serveral for Intel.

Hope this helps!
