I am having problems with my NEC 2500A , I have just upgraded my computer to an asus nforce 4 mobo etc. The last thing i did with the drive before i upgraded was try and over burn a DVD by about 5MB, which screwed up the DVD.
Now any files I try and write to about the last 1GB of a disk seem to be unreadable. I am using Nero 18.104.22.168 everything seems to burn ok with no errors, but verification fails, and the last ~1GB of files on the disk are unreadable. I am using rubbish single layer dvd+r media, off the same spool as before and have not had any problems with it, so i am pretty sure its not the medias fault.
I am running the drive as a slave and on Nvidia IDE drives, both of which from reading around here, can make the drive not play nice.
I have tried lowering the burn speed to 2.4x from 4x, and flashing the latest Herrie firmware.
Question is before i go monkeying around in my case, and playing the device drivers, is it likely I have buggered my drive, or are there other problems it could be? The problem dosent look ide driver/position related, it looks drive related to me.
