[qanda]This thread is about the NEC ND-2510A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi everyone!
This is my second post:)
I will start by letting you know I\'m somewhat clueless when it comes to drives and firmware and all that tech stuff.
I really need some help.
I recently have been having issues with my d drive - it\'s a NEC DVDRW ND-2510A. It\'s in my desktop pc which is an older computer, a Gateway 550GR. I have Windows XP with that service pack 2 thingie.
The prob is, I can\'t burn anything anymore! I use DVD-R\'s and the burner had been working fine until about 1 month ago.
I downloaded an avi file, used the Convertxdvd software to convert it and burn to the dvd, but I keep getting an error:
I have no idea what it means by "Code 05 30 05 Illegal request, Cannot write medium, Incompatible format"
So then I tried to just burn something simple, like a .doc and a .jpg, but I got some window that popped up stating something about Windows encountered an error copying.
So it seems I can\'t burn anything to that drive.
Does anyone know if I need to do some kind of update for the driver or firmware thing?
I\'m sorry I\'m an idiot about all this:)
If you need any more info about my system, just let me know.
