I have a Microsolutions Backpack external DVD writer and the company has gone under. However, the guts are a NEC 3500AG.

Can this burner burn min-DVD or DVD-RAM?? Are these two formats the same thing??

For mini-DVD - I’m not too sure.

To my knowledge, the NEC 3500AG doesn’t do DVD-RAM, I’m sorry to say. This is a different kind of media to mini-DVD (a search here for DVD-RAM should pull up some useful info on the medium). :slight_smile:

The ND-3500 will read and write Mini DVD-R/RW without problems.
DVD-RAM however, is not supported at all.
