I bought NEC ND-4550A and i had a strange problem:
It didnt read the DVD-R’s it wrote, though it burned it just fine since my standalone DVD’s in the salon and my room read it.
I tried 3 diffrent medias, one is a cheap one AO-something i think and one is TDK and another one i dont know exactly (which my friend burned in his pioneer dvdrw).
The error windows gave me:
Windows cannot read from this disc. It might be corrupted, or using a format that is not compatible with Windows.
I also tried in DOS with a boot disk since i thought it can be windows problem.
it read the original dvd but the burned one’s it said: General failure reading drive … bla bla
Ok here’s more details of what i tried:
It reads CD-R, and Original DVD (not burned).
It doesnt read DVD-R (burned with this burner or other).
I tried firmware upgrade.
I send it back and they told me it does everything fine, though they may lie so i cancled the deal.
I just dont know what to do now, i want this model but what if it will do the same problem to me again.
So maybe you can tell me some other brand’s model that does the same as this one, and have the same quality. (except Plaxtor cuz its expensive )
Thanks in advance,
You’re my only hope
