We have a gateway 500gr with a nec 2510a dvd burner. Picked up a large stack of memorex 16x dvd-r discs, but am unable to write to them (have tried about a dozen times, using both ICopyDVD and Nero 6) I am able to burn to an OfficeMax DVD-r 8x disc with no issues. Hate to waste the 200 Memorex DVD’s.
Friend told me it was probably my firmware…flashed in 2.18, and made sure I updated the drivers as well. Even went as far as reblasting the machine and reloading everything. (Based upon a thread I saw)
Discs work fine in wife’s work machine.
Is this a firmware issue or something else? I am at the latest version. I ran free version of dvd info and it shows the DVD-R and drive as NEC 2510A with 2.18 firmware. When disks are in, shows it as a DVD-R, but just unable to write to the Memorex.
Really thinking of replacing my CD Rom with a new DVD burner if thought that would allow me to use the discs, as it may be just as cheap. Any help before doing that would be greatly appreciated.
