Hello, I have had an NEC 2500a for a few months, but all of a sudden today, out of nowhere, it stopped burning CD images. At first I thought it was the media I was burning with, Sony CD-r’s, but the first few blanks burned great, and this problem arose right after I successfully burned another image.
It will start to burn but after a certain percentage (whenever it feels like it) it will give me an error. I’ve tried Nero, DVD Decrypter, CDRWin, and Alcohol 120% and they all just stop recording at different spots. I tried a few different images and I still have the same problem. What’s weird is that I can burn new compilations, but I can’t burn already made images. I tried mounting the images with Daemon Tools and tried doing a CD Copy, but I still get the same errors. The errors are not specific at all, Alcohol and Nero will just say “Something happened” or “Disk Write Error”. I’ve wasted about 15 CD-R’s now and I really can’t think of any solution.
Can anyone help?
Also, I’ve tried different firmware version, official and unofficial and I also have DMA enabled. Also buffer is always full and cpu use is to a minimum.
Here’s what Nero cd speed showed:
