Exclamation DRIVER NEEDED: NEC ND-3550A (Windows XP Professional) [IDE]

H just built a new system from scratch and i got the ASUS M2N-SLI DELUXE mobo and i grabbed my NEC ND3550A from my old system. I have had no problems with this drive since the day i installed it. I am using a copy of windows XP Pro SP2(fully updated) that i have on three other pc's in my house that work just fine. The problem is that i got windows installed fine but now the drive is seen in BIOS and device manager but the drive wont see that i have alot of cd/dvds in the drive? i can put in the windows install cd and it sees it but throw in a movie dvd and its not there. many of my cd/dvd buring programs including Nero say that there is no disk in the drive when there is. i have uninstalled the IDE driver in DM and rebooted but im still having the same problem. any ideas on what other steps i could try to see what the deal is. i wouldnt think that just swapping it to a new pc could make it go out. and yes i have also checked with asus on the ide drivers and i have there latest ones for this board.

To read or play a dvd movie disk requires 3rd party dvd decoding software like WinDVD or PowerDVD.

it doesn't change the fact that you still need dvd decoding software in order to play dvd movie disks.

Is the drive missing from My Computer?

It sounds like you have a defective drive. That model is notorious for going bad.
