Is my NEC ND-1100A broken? (Bad burning results)

Hi,

I have a NEC ND-1100A burner since a few weeks, and everytime i burn a DVD+R or +RW and read that disc afterwards in either my liteon or LG DVD Rom drive, I get massive spindowns when reading the disc, especially in the outer areas of the disc. I have tried with very good brand DVDs like Verbatim 4x, Ricoh etc., but the result in Nero CD Speed looks like this:


this image is from a Ricoh 2.4x DVD+R, burnt with the NEC and read with the Liteon 166s, but even Verbatims don’t look much better.

my K-Probe results look like this:

Below is the result of a Verbatim 4x DVD+R:

Now, what do you think, is this normal, or is my device just defective, and I should get another writer from NEC?

Please tell me if you have similar experience.

Best regards,

Jackie

What firmware does the drive have e.g. 1.9 or 1.A0

Also on the drives FCC ID label does it say GEF or GNX ?

I forgot to mention, it’s one of the “good ones”, FW 1.A0, produced in March 2003.

I have the same ‘problem’

I think its just that the dvd +r / +rw is to new for perfect readback in normal drives.

I think its mostly the fault of the reader and not the writer. (Not said that the liteon is bad or low qual. or something, some drives don’t even read +r / +rw media at all)
