this is really weird!!
I am using the stock/retail 1.01 firmware for my ND-3540A. I have burned many DVD-R / DVD+R with this drive, all perfect. No problem with various types Ritek, Prodics, TaiyoYuden, etc.
Today I needed to burn CD-R for a friend with some files on it and I put in the CD-R (Verbatim) and … nothing! Drive did not recognize media at all and Nero just kept saying “insert blank CD”. I tried other brand (Maxell and also Ritek) but all the same— did not recognize!
I re-flashed the drive with the RPC-1 1.01 firmware from The Dangerous Brothers hoping maybe it might help but… same result!!!
Has anyone else seen this? any idea what to do? Drive is only about 3 weeks old and like I said it burns DVDs perfect no problem. Just CD-R it seems to be totally screwed.
I run Win XP Pro SP2 (full retail, not cracked) + AnyDVD 18.104.22.168 also retail/full non-crack
