My computer has problems burning DVD's and normal CD's. It can only burn DVD+RW (Only tried Sony), but anything else fails (Tried about 6 different media types for DVD-R and CD-R). Fails as in lots of the data is corrupt. I've been trying to figure this out for about a month now, and no one has helped me yet (on any forum).
Here are 2 pictures that can sort-of sum up my problem.
The DVD in is a blank DVD-R (4.7 Gig). I tihnk it recognizes it as an overburnt CD...
My device manager refers to my NEC ND-2500A as a "CD-ROM"
According to my computer, my NEC ND-2500A (Firmware 1.07) is a CD-ROM, not a DVD-ROM. Is there any way I can fix this? It's the only thing I can still think of that might be causing my problems.
My BIOS is dated 2001, so I'm not sure if it supports DVD-Drives or not. I'm also not sure if I hooked up the DVD Writer properly. It reads everything fine, and burns my Sony DVD+RW's fine though.
I'm currently fiddling with how I installed it, and if all else fails, I'm going to upgrade my BIOS (although I really don't want to, it's a VERY last resort).
So, can anyone suggest how I can fix this problem?
Thanks in advance.
