I need some help with an error on a newly-installed NEC 2500A; I’ve been wrestling with it all day, and have gotten nowhere…
Every time I try to write to a blank disc on the DVD drive, I get a Windows error msge that says: “The disc in the drive is not a writable CD or it is full.”
What I’ve already tried:
1.) Went to the NEC site and upgraded the firmware from 1.06 > 1.07.
2.) The original brand discs purchased were Ridata G04’s. I went out and bought a pkg of Verbatim DVD+R. Get the exact same error.
3.) Made sure that there’s no packet-writing software installed on the machine [no InCD, no Roxio, no Easy CD, nothing].
4.) Went into Device Manager, and was told that the NEC drive is “working properly”.
5.) The NEC is installed on the secondary IDE cable [ATA 133], in the slave position [there’s a Memorex 52x CD-RW in the master spot], with the jumper set on “slave.” I’ve already tried setting the jumper on both drives to cable select; got the same error.
6.) Right-clicked on the drive in My Computer and made sure on the Recording tab that it’s set to “Enable recording”.
I would appreciate any help I could get with this. Thanks in advance!
