I recently installed my NEC 2510a in my computer system. I had no issues burning ProDisc R03 8X disks at the full rated speed of 8x. However when I attempt to read them back on the NEC I get numerous read errors and bad data. If I attempt to read the same discs back on a Sony DDU-1612 or DDU-1621, I get no read errors at all. I’ve got a spare Sony DDU-1612 that I could install and just use for reading.
I don’t really plan on doing DVD rips. I bought the NEC to backup my digital images on DVD. If the combination of NEC and Sony will do the trick I guess I could live with that, although it will mean having to pull one of my hard drives to free up an IDE Cable.
Anyone else find that the NEC has trouble reading back disc’s that were created on the same drive? Would burning at 6x or 4x help much?
