I have this weird problem, that I can not find anything about on any forum/website/newsgroup.
I am using WIN98SE/Nero/Nec ND-1000a. Sometimes after burning a CD-R or CD-R/W, the media type has been changed to CD-ROM. This is very unfortunate, as I am unable to use the disk afterwards for further writing. I have used different programs to check the media type, they all give the same result. The problem is manufacturer independant: I have used LiteON, Sony, Arita.
How is this possible? I thought the media type was ‘hard coded’ on a portion of the CD-R that can not be overwritten.
I tried the following: upgrade Nero from version 5.5 to 6.3. No change. Upgrade the firmware of my Nec to the ND-1100a. No change. I suspect it is my Nec, because I have never experienced this problem on my LiteON burner.
Is it possible to force Nero to burn the CD-R, even if it is reported as a CD-ROM?
Thanks in advance for any information on this weird case!
