ND 3500 AG Won't recognise 8.5 GB DL DVD's

Can anyone help. I have an ND 3500 AG. It fails to identify dual layer DVD’s by Verbatim and Traxxdata correctly, indicating that they are full cd’s. As a result I cannot use the Drive with any program that has an auto “burn” feature and I doubt that it will burn dual layer.

I have contacted NEC who say the Drive will only operate with Verbatim DVD+R9 DL what is the 9 about. Are these the same as Verbatim DVD+R DL?

Advice please

Yes, R9 is the specification (is that the right word?) of dual layer. I think 4.7GB (4.35GB effective) discs are R5. (anyone correct me if I am wrong).

Get 2.17 Firmware and all your DL discs will be recognised by the drive


#4

Verbatim DL media should have been ok with the stock 2.16 firmware. 2.17 firmware will also be fine with Ritek DL media

Where’s a good place to get this 2.17 firmware.

The sticky “NEC firmware and modding links” is a good start. Just look at the top of the NEC forum here.
