Can some expert give me some advice about dvd disc burned by NEC 2500A, i have problems on read the dvd-r disc on other DVD-Rom. I am urge to sell the drive if the disc compatibility is so poor. Should i just get a pioneer dvd writer and forget the crappy NEC drive?

Writer: NEC 2500A (firmware 1.06 RPC-2 manufactured: Feb 2004 Malaysia)
1st Reader: LiteOn LTD-165H (firmware CH12 RPC-1)
2nd Reader: LiteOn LTD-163H

Writer Software: Nero 6.3.0.3 PowerPack
Disc Format: ISO9660 / UDF
using DAO (Disc At Once)

None of the DVD+R/-R disc can be read by my DVD-Roms, only the burner can read the disc burn by itself. This is crazy !

  1. I use both 2.4x/4x disc with no sucessful.
  2. I try to click booktype settings in Nero(i know it is useless on 2500A).
  3. I waste more than 15 discs on variable format DVD-R or DVD+R
  4. I try to burn the 4X disc on 2.4X speed to reduce error(slower speed are more compatible, right?)
  5. My drive was replaced a brand new one when i found out all the disc were can’t be read on other DVD-Rom
  6. I was told by my NEC distrubtor in Hong Kong(i live in H.K.) that using good media like verbatmin & mitsubishi can be read by other DVD-Rom
  7. I try to burn the disc on ISO or UDF, not work.
  8. I have removed all packet writting software (cloneDVD, winiso, blindwrite)

None of the method on above will work. I am getting extremely frustrataed why disc can read on my dvd writer but not my DVD-Rom?? I am only try to burn a data file disc, not a video disc. What makes the disc failed to be read on other DVD-rom?

The only sucessful media is a DVD+RW can be read on other DVD-Rom drive.

It seems that you’ve got a defective burner. I had very bad burning results with my NEC ND-2500A on ALL DVDs i’ve burned with it (even on MCC and TY Verbatims). I’ve returned the drive to the shop where I’ve bought it and the replacement burner (another NEC ND-2500A) works fine. There are some guys here in this forum who have got problems with Ritek G04 discs. I guess that these guys have got a defective burner, too. Ritek G04s run very fine on my new NEC.

@sheepmer

Can you run a Nero DVDSpeed test and/or a DVDInfoPro error test on the discs that you’ve burnt with the 2500A and post your results back here?
