Im a newbie here, and looking for some help. I just came to realize i have been using the 16x dvd+r media on my nd-2500a… (incompatible i suppose) Problem i have is the disks i did burn are not readable, whenever i put a disk in nothing shows up as if there was no disk. So my question is -do i need to flash my burner with new firmware, and if so, which one? Or do i need a whole new unit that supports read/write of dvd+r? Im just a bit bothered by the fact that i managed to back up some data on the dvd+r disks and now not able to access it. dvd-r media works just fine though.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance!
As informative as it was, the only thing that made sense as to my issue was removing the upper and lower filters since I already flashed the drive with several firmwares and still no change. Please correct me if im wrong.
Maybe its oldish now and slowly dies…
Just keep using DVD-R…You would need to change booktype from +R to DVD-ROM ,however I don’t believe your NEC allows changing it… If you must use +R media then get a new drive that allows it, e.g Lite-on…
I came to that conclusion as well. The more i researched i found out out that nd-25xx are likely to have read issues. Booktype can be changed with modded firmware, but its useless as it will not read, just write. My next step is getting a new drive, something that is compatible with more media and more reliable… Any suggestions appreciated!
Thanks a lot!
