I have searched the forums but could not find an answer to my question, so I am hoping that someone can help me.
I am using an NEC 3500 AG with the stock 2.16 firmware, and am using nero 188.8.131.52 and dvd shrink. I have burned five dvd’s so far (successful burns at 8x in Nero), all using the same settings on some ritek 8x g05 media. My problem is that when I attempt to playback the burned disk in the 3500 it will play sometimes, and other times it will not. I have to keep reinserting the disc until the name of the dvd shows up in “my computer.” When I insert the media, sometimes my drive changes from “dvd-rw” drive to “cd-drive” in my computer, and when I try to browse the files, it acts as if no media is inserted. I eject and put the disc back in a few times, and then it finally shows up with the name of the movie and plays fine in power dvd. The same disc reads fine all the time in any of my other dvd players.
Does anybody have any idea why this is happening? I am using “no multisession” in nero so I don’t think it is a finalizing problem. Please help!
