Nec 3500 AG Can't burn DL DVD's

vbimport

#1

Hello,

I’m trying to burn a DL layer DVD with a Nec 3500 AG burner, but it won’t burn.
I’m using the latest Nero version and the error messages I get are:

No seek complete
Could not perform start of Disc-at-once.

I tried searching the post, but could’n’t find the answer.


#2

What media did you use?


#3

Upgrade your 3500 firmware to support more DL brands (Ritek D01…).


#4

I tried to change the firmware, but it seems impossible from the current version I’m using: 2.86. (please tell me to which version I can upgrade, 2.19 is impossible).


#5

You will need a firmware flashing tool and a binary copy of the firmware you wish to flash. Read the NEC FAQ for more info.

Yes, as terminalvelocd said, use http://binflash.cdfreaks.com (Win32 GUI version) to open and flash this firmware (.bin and .exe firmware are supported).

Note : You can first backup your original 2.86 firmware with this tool, in .bin format.

I just finalized the first DL dvd.

Thanks for al you’re help!

This is obviously an old thread, but hopefully someone can help me out. I have this DVD burner and I am trying DLs for the 1st time. 1st question - I bought some TDK DLs to try and burn and I am having the same problems as described here, so if I can make this update will the burner then work with these DVDs?

2nd Question - If it will work, can somebody give me a detailed instruction on how to make the update? I am running XP. I downloaded the Win32 version of the program. I think I need to open a DOS screen, right? from there I am at “C:\documents and settings\my name>” From here I don’t know what to do.

If this is not going to work for me anybody have suggestions as to a new DVD burner to purchase? Brand is helpful, model great.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I suggest you read the “how to’s” on
Liggy and Dees page http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/How-to-Flash/


#10

I appreciate the attempt to help, but I have seen that area and it is a bit over my head. That link takes you to a sort of text book instruction for people who have a decent idea of what they are doing. I need the “flashing for dummies” explanation. Anybody?

Thanks again


#11

Not sure what you are looking at but the “how to” on “How to use the GUI version of Binflash” is pretty well layed out.
Take a look at it.

Thanks for the help. I had downloaded the “Win 32” version and when I opened it it just opened and closed in a fraction of a second. I thought that was the one I needed but I’ll try the GUI version when I get home (working now). Do you know if I should get the “Win32 GUI” or the “Win x64 GUI”? I’m running XP.


#13

Are you running the 32 Bit version of Windows (Win32 GUI) or the 64 Bit version (Win x64 GUI)?


#14

I’m not sure. How can I tell? It is XP from Dell.
Thanks


#15

Well, I figured out I had the 32. I successfully flashed the drive, so thank you. Unfortunately, I am still not able to burn the TDK disks I bought. I tried the “Liggy’s 3500 bitsetting Firmware 2.1b” & “TDK OEM Firmware 2.C8”. Neither worked. Those were the right ones to try, right?


#16

Please post the mediacode/MID.

You can use dvd.identifier.


#17

What is Mediacode/MID? Or more important, where / how do I find it and where do I get dvd.identifier? I guess dvd.identifier will probably tell me the answer to my 1st question.

Thanks again to all for the help


#18

OK, I searched this site and found dvd.identifier link. I’m at work but will download and post the results of it when I get home. Thanks.
