External ND-1300A Burning Problem

#1

Ever since I’ve purchased this burner I haven’t been able to burn DVDs :frowning:
ANY help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Here are the results from the latest attempt at burning:

Also forgot to mention, I’ve updated Nero with all the latest updates (the past post may not show this as that test was done with my external burner and a different computer. Just wanted to make sure it wasn’t something to do with my computer that was causing the issue).

So on my machine I was getting the same basic message even after updating Nero with all the updates.


#3

Hopefully someone will post a reply SOON… :wink:
I would really hate to just throw the burner away after I paid $100 for it last year. But I just can’t get it to burn any DVDs at all. I’m sure I’m just an idiot and have some setting or something wrong. Unfortunately don’t even know where to begin to look…


#4

have you tried DVDDecrypter?
That is far easier than Nero.


#5

Yes I’ve tried DVDDecrypter and still can’t get anything to burn to my External ND-1300A


#6

Just realized I failed to comment that I can play DVDs from this external drive and I can burn CDs to this external drive. I am just unable to burn DVDs with this external drive…and therein lies the problem… :sad:


#7

I’ve got this drive… what firmware are you running? What are your computer specs? Have you tried burning at 2x? Can you create ISO files with it? You do know there is a difference between blank DVD media and blank CD media, right?


#8

Firmware I’m running = I have no idea. I thought this external burner was basically plug and play. I’ve seen stuff on upgrading firmware for internal burners but would have no idea how to upgrade firmware for an external burner.

Computer specs = P4 2.66 Processor. 120G hard drive, 256MB RAM running XP Home. However since it is an external burner I’ve tried it on multiple computers and all give the same result, “Could not perform start of Disc-at-once”

I’ve tried burning at 1x, 2x and 4x - all with the same results.

Can’t burn any files to DVD with it, not just movie files, but text files, etc. I thought perhaps the spindle of blank Sony DVDs was bad, but I checked a couple in someone else’s burner and they worked fine. (Yes I know the difference between a blank DVD and a blank CD :wink: )


#9

Anyone out there? No one has any ideas? :sad:

My advice is go there and to Herrie’s site. I flashed my external 1100A to 1300A and it works flawlessly.

Maybe, since that firmware works, it could solve your problem.

Just a thought.
