There are two NEC DVD drives in this computer.
I flashed the ND 3520A original firmware, version 1.04 to the firmware version 1.25, wanted to keep it under NEC firmware. Binflash is a great tool…
Now the DVD-R’s that I have burned are unrecognizable to my DVD Rom, a NEC DV 5700A. I use only Verbatim 8X DVD-R’s for the widest compatibility with my other DVD players in the house. The DVD’s can be read by the ND 3520A though, so the writing is sucessful. I am using Nero Express version 188.8.131.52 for all the burning.
I checked both drives with DISC Info version 1.5.5, they are compatable with DVD-R discs.
My questions would be, (1) Did I change the format of the DVD’s I write now that I went to the 1.25 firmware???
(2) How can I set the ND 3520A to burn in a compatible format with the DV 5700A???
(3) How can you tell what format a disc is burned in??? (Sorry for the Newbie question)
I have tried for days to upgrade the firmware on the DV 5700A, but it will not take any other firmware.
Thank you in advance to all who answer my questions.
