HELP: Nec 2500a horrible results straight out the box

Just plugged it my nec 2500a straight from the box, burned a DVD and ran kprobe on it on my lite 811S. Kprobe results are extremely high, in the 1000s range.

My questions is … how do I tell if the results are from my nec or a bad read from my lite on. Is there something else I can do to check the dics or the health of my burner?

Thansk in advance.

You can run a speed test in Nero DVD Speed. If the read curve is smooth, no worries then…

Okay, I’ll give that a try. Is there a tutorial that explains how to get this read curve from nero dvd speed?

Yo-

What media are you trying to burn to??

With any NEC burner (or any burner for that matter) - suggest using only good quality media like Taiyo Yuden, ritek, Maxell, Verbatim, etc.

My old 2500 and 2510 seemed to prefer -R media BTW-

I’m using some RICOH discs so I know it’s not the media.

I’ll try running nero dvd speed to see how it looks …

I’ll bet your using RICOHJPNR02 disc’s!

If you use the 2510 firmware 2.16 (original or from Herrie) they will be somewhat better!
