Does NEC have a list of supported / compatable media for this drive?
I can’t find one on their site.
The newegg reviews for this drive indicate problems with some Ritek disks.
Also how does the book type setting for this drive work?
Information on this is next to imposible to find and emailing NEC proved fruitless.
The Lite-on has book type support from the factory.
It appears the NEC needs a hacked bios to support this.
Lite-on releases new bios’es, NEC not so much…
Anand’s review stated a lot of errors with the Lite-on, the NEC not so much.
This will be my first DVD-R/W and the only one I will be able to purchase.
Don’t want to end up with a lemon that is picky about media and has to use hard to find or expensive media.
