I have an NEC 3520A that has changed names during post and then doesn't show up in My computer in XP Pro.
Originally showed as NEC blah blah at startup but now says ^NDC DVD^RV ,ND 3420 blah blah blah,
The drive is set as Primary Master device since all my other drives are SATA. Worked fine for a long time and then 0ne day when rebooting I noticed the ^NDC instead of the normal NEC. Any idea of the reason for this and a fix too? TIA

Check the cable first then check the manufacturers web site for any firmware updates.
