I have a nec 2500 dvd writer and i can only get it to read disks, so far i can not get it to write any kind of cd for me??? Do i need drivers, if so where can i get them from and how do i install them. I did not get an install disk with this item as i bought it 2nd hand off ebay!!!! if i dont need any drivers how do i configure it to write cds?? I have windows xp.

It should read and write with out loading any special drivers. The OEM drives come with no disks anyway. What software are you using to try and write to the disks and what blank disks are you using?

I`m using nero burn to write, the software tells me it has written the disk succesfully but the drive doesnt spin when the software says "writing". i`m using datasafe 80min cd-r 52x silver premium. i appriciate you helping me. John

Does the green disk activity light on the front of the drive come on 1. when you first put a blank disk in, and 2. when it's supposed to be writing to the disk? What speed is the program set to write to the disk at?

of nero are you using? The 2500 is quite a new drive yo may just have to update nero to the latest version

Sounds to me like it's using InCD if you're dragging and dropping to copy stuff. This means your discs have been specially formatted for InCD which means Nero won't be able to use them like ordinary blank discs.
