    Ok this burner wont reconize data disk or transfer files properly it locks up and many problems.

    It sees the files. But if you click a folder slowly. And you can never transfer a files from disk to pc.

    I had a similar issue with Vista and my dvd drives. I updated the dvd drive firmware and everything worked fine after that. You may want to check and see if there is a firmware update for your cd/dvd drive.

    By coincidence, I have just read this on another site. I do not have the problem, nor do I know if it is exactly the cause of years, but, fwiw.
    • Press the start button and in the search bar at the bottom of the start menu type “regeditâ€Â￾
    • Click on “regedit.exeâ€Â￾ in the search results and then give permission when windows asks you to open the registry editor.
    • On the tree view in the left side of the registry editor find “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEâ€Â￾ and maximise this
    • The in HKEY LOCAL MACHINE maximise SYSTEM
    • in SYSTEM maximise CurrentControlSet
    • In CurrentControlSet maximise Control
    • in Control Maximise Class
    In the class tree their should be a list of keys with very long names (example: {0475BB51-5A02-4EE0-B36C-29040FAD2650}) click on the first one under Class and look to the right panel their should be information about that key and you need see if that key says “CD/DVD drivesâ€Â￾, keep checking each key in the class tree until you find that.
    Now once you have found the CD/DVD drives key in the right panel their should be upper-filters and lower-filters, delete these (note: there might be two lower and upper filters with the second set having a .bak extension make sure you don’t delete these if you do). once you have deleted these close the registry editor and re-boot.

    Sorry Matt, but you do not have the filters, so nothing to delete. I will have a browse and see if there are any other solutions.

    Later. I do not consider this an answer to the Windows 7 DVD problem, as it is happening with different models of DVD burner but, Having a look around the web, I can see that the NEC 3550a is giving particular problems. I can only suggest you wait and see if anyone, including Microsoft, can come up with a positive answer. I see you are on a couple of other help sites. If anyone gives an answer that works, perhaps you could be kind enough to post back here.

    I also have a dvdrom (DVD+- RW NEC ND-3530a) that isnt working properly.... I am not able to play dvd movies, where as last night I had no problem getting it to play, though I had to try a few times before it would play. After trying the same thing I did last night to get the contraption to work and play it was a dead end. I have followed your steps and I only have an UpperFilters and the data that it is displaying is GEARAspiWDM, there isnt any LowerFilters. Would I delete that one?
