Just a question here.I've got a pc with dvd drive which I bought many years ago and installed Nero 5.5 which I also had bought seperately and been running fine for many years.
Recently I wanted to upgrade my drive (d/layer,and speed) bought a drive (LG brand) and it came with a bundled Nero Express OEM version.It doesn't include the Nero Burning ROM unless I purchase it online.
I tried to reinstalled my old Nero to the new drive but was not detected.
My question is why is it so ?
Why is it the new drive can only be detected by the bundled software but not with the Nero which I had purchased years earlier ?:(

Have you tied to update the firmware of the drive? I'm sure somewhere on LG's website you can download them.

Firmware is funny thing. My brother had to downgrade his on a dvd drive as after upgrading it windows didn't recognise the drive.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
