Hi rm04q1 (nice name, btq:bigsmile:),
your drive does not support the newest 16x media. What is the MID code of your TDKs? What firmware version are you using now?

hi pepst

thanks for the fast reply and you have got a very nice name aswell

i am using 2.18 i have already tried 2.19 which i think is the latest one but then went back to 2.18

the MID code is:

MBI 01RG40

thanks btw for helping me

MBI 01RG40 is supported by the newest fw version 2.19. (http://www.cdr.cz/dvd_rekordery/nec/firmware/nd2510/2486_FW_ND-2510A_GEN_win219-20A.zip)
Can your NEC successfully burn another brands of media, e.g. Verbatim, Sony, Memorex?
Could you post here a complete error log?

Here is the patched version of 2.19 firmware version, with it your drive should write a MBI 01RG40 media with MCC 02RG20 strategy.
Use it on your own responsibility! :stuck_out_tongue:

i have tried updateing with the the patched version of 2.19 firmware and it successfully updated but it still won burn

i have burnt with other brands i have tried:

sony x16 they work
verbitim x16 they work
tdk x16 they dont work for some reason :sad:

i dont burn my games at x16 i normaly burn them at x4

here is ther erro log

:frowning: Then you have two choices:

  • use supported and working media (Verbatim)
  • buy a new drive (Optiarc 7200 would be a good choice)

These drives do burn Verbatim media acceptably, but recent drives do deliver much better burn quality on recent media.

I accidentally fried my 2510A (long story) and I didn’t really care. :wink:

kk thanks for all your help im gonna try to buy a new dvd drive cause the one i got now is too old
