Dual Layer Woes - NEC ND3500A 2.18 official firmware

Hi guys,

I’m wondering what other firmware I should try. I successfully burned a Verbatim MKM 001 disc at 2.4x but my DVD-Reader is reading the disc back very slowly so far with no C2 errors but obviously it is having issues reading the disc because every 1.5 seconds it reads only a tenth of a % of the disc :(.

Please mention what firmware you might recommend for better results?

I also burned it with Nero, is there other software that could produce better results?

(I did bump my PC slightly during the last few % of the burn and the burn stopped for a second, resumed and finished recording with no errors reported).

Any advice and help is appreciated.
