Hi, Newbie here.
I have a Dell Dimension 4600c with a NEC nd5100 a cd/dvd writer.
When I try to burn a cd or dvd, I get a message stating that the blank disc is full or not writable. This happens regardless of the software used ( wmp,real,sonic).
The nd5100a will read and play any disc store bought or recorded.
I have updated the firmware at the Dell site.
I can burn using a Lite-on external drive.
