Hello! Maybe you guys can help me out with a real tricky problem I have been facing the last couple of weeks.
Imagine that there are four NEC owners. Two with ND3500 and two with ND3520.
One order of DVD-R's (CMC MAG AE1) 8x media from the same batch. The two ND3520 burners can simply NOT make a good burn on these discs, not even at 4x. I'm thinking that these discs must be extremely crappy. Something must have gone seriously wrong at the factory or something. My knowledge about NEC burners is that they at least do working burns on the worst kinds of media. I've seen threads discussing CMC MAG AE1 burns getting almost flawlessly at 12x. I have tried every firmware there is, nothing changes the quality.
Bad batch, seems pretty logic, right?! Except for one little detail....
Can someone please tell me why the same discs burn without any reading problems on a pair of ND3500 burners with stock firmwares.
Any suggestions? I'm really confused over here. I cant imagine a drive getting worse with the evolution. I'd really like to hear something like "Don't worry, it's just a firmware screwup, NEC will have those discs spinning in notime for ya!"
