I just bought a NEC ND-2500A, and have made four coasters.
This is my first and only optical drive, but I have lots of expereince with CD-R/W drives and 15+ years of experience with computers.
anyhow, I've tried 4 dvd-r's already:
TDK DVD-R x2 media (ugh?) TDKG02
WinXP Pro SP1
the discs take about 28 minutes to finish at 2 speed, and of the four, two read in windows, but both give read errors in winamp. tried scanning them in nero cd speed,
got the unrecovered read error (031100) on all four...I have a screenshot of the disc which read the best, if it would help.
I'm stuck. I dunno if it's Bad media for this drive, or maybe something simple that I missed along the way.
DMA is enabled... the firmware on the drive is current (1.06), too.
Maybe there is some driver or bit of software or setting in windows that I have not taken care of? I bought the drive OEM (like all NEC's) and figured that it'd work as an ATAPI device and wouldn't need anything special?
Anyhow, any and all helpful suggestions are welcome.
