    i have an nec nd-3540a... and it just stopped reading disks... i dunno how long its been like this, but i know it read a disk about a week ago...
    i already updated the firmware off of nec's website and that didnt help, and i've already uninstalled the driver from device manager and rebooted so it would install again... that didnt work either... any ideas?:confused:
