Hi everyone, this forum has offered me much information on how to work with my 2500A drive. I really appreciate everyoneâ€™s work here.
I purchased a bare bone NEC 2500A drive two years ago, settled on Herrieâ€™s 1.06 for most part. And I had been able to do most CD/DVD burning all right. Recently Iâ€™ve discovered many errors when tying to read files on backup DVD+R, from the same NEC drive. I figured I should try the latest firmware first. I chose Herrieâ€™s 1.08. After updating, DVD read and writes errors seem to have disappeared, but Iâ€™m unable to read any regular CDs now. No VCD, music CD, data CD, original or backups. CD would spin a bit and stop, and the drive seems to think there is nothing in it.
Iâ€™m since tried the official 1.0a version to no avail.
I have WIN XP SP1, the drive in secondary slave.
