My Post was moved to InCD, as it was assumed that it was a software related problem. This is a hardware problem!
I replaced a LiteOn drv with this NEC DVD writer, but it is unable to use any packet writers, on DVDs or CDs
Prgrams tested: InCd (v 4x & 5x), FileCD, DirectCD and Windows writer
I updated the firmware with OEM Nec drivers then the Y6 rpc1 from this site, but it still won’t Format either CDs or DVDs.
It does read these UDF disks without any problem, but warns (currently InCD) that it can’t write to the disks.
The format process starts then a notice comes up (after 2 - 6% formatting), saying it can’t access the disk, check for scratches etc. This is the same for all Disks ( + or -, slow or fast, new or old, CD or DVD)
InCD does work on my CD writer and was working on a Liteon DVD Recorder (that I replaced with the NEC). :a
For standard burns, single and multisession, as well as DVDs, the burner works as expected fine.
This drv was tested in 2 computers and 4 different packet writers. It is on the Secondary - Master, with a good 80 pin cable and pin selected for Master, DMA is working properly, Standard MS IDE drivers.
Has anybody noticed this problem?
Do any of the firmware upgrades enable packet writing?
Is this burner just a piece of Crap?
I thought NEC usually made good equipment?
