NEC 3500A and Memorex 16x dvdr

vbimport

#1

Just bought some Memorex 16x dvd-r and put them in my NEC 3500 AG burner and opened up nero. I get the following speeds to choose from 1x, 2x, 3.1x, 4.1x, 5.1x, 6.1x I have tried to burn several of these disks and I get the following error Could not perform start of disk at once. Anyone else have these problems? I have windows xp sp2 and the original firmware


#2

Ok, can anyone tell me how to update the firmware for the drive? Maybe that will fix the problem


#3

It’s probably not the firmware, media or drive but here is a quick list of things to check:

  1. Have the latest version of Nero?
  2. Is the drive set up as UDMA 2?
  3. Using the MS ide drivers?

Other than that you probably need to post more information about the OS and hardware.


#4

How do I check to see if it’s setup to use UDMA2? I can get the latest version of nero as far as the OS and Hardware all I know is I’m on a fresh install of Windows XP SP2 and the drive is an NEC 3500 AG and I have done nothing to it


#5

Mediacode of the Maxell. Use dvdidentifier.

What the current firmware version. Latest 2.1A firmware http://www.de.nec.de/software/1923_FW_ND-3500A_win21A.zip


#6

UDMA2 can be confirmed using the Device Manager in the Control Panel. Post back if you need more info and put up screenshots.


#7

I followed jbv’s directions and it worked. flashed it with the new firmware and is working just fine now. just hope the media works. thanks for all of your help


#8

I think I’m having a similar problem, but it’s not the firmware and I have the latest nero. I checked my Primary IDE Channels UDMA and it’s at mode 5, does that make a difference?


#9

What’s your problem. Can you be more specific. Media related or.

Primary IDE Channel is your harddisk. That’s fine. Check Secondary as well, should be in mode 2 where you burner is attached.

Do you have latest firmware 2.1A


#10

My problem is that anytime I attempt to burn something all I get out of it is a coaster. And yes I have the lastest firmware v3.05 for a NEC 3520AW. And my Secondary Master is in UDMA Mode 2


#11

Use dvdidentifier to get mediacode. Could be bad media.


#12

Yea, I was told that previously, actually that’s all anybody says so I did get new media a while ago Maxell’s [which used to work for me] but the same problem occurs.


#13

I’m just curious, but does anybody here “actually” know what they’re talking about? I mean, you can be honest it’s not a big deal. Because this is the third thread I’ve posted in trying to get a solution to this problem but every just says the same thing like it’s all they know [you have crappy media] and then the replies stop after that. Like, what’s going on?


#14

Explain yourself better, provide more detailed information and maybe others can help you further.
What is the MID on your discs?
What speed are you burning them?
Can you post a Disc Quality scan?
Do the discs fail in midburn? If so, post the log file from the appropriate burning software.


#15

I’ve burnt at 2x and 4x [the maximum speed of the disc]
I’ve used Dynex and Maxell
When I attempt to burn on the Lead-In an error occurs that reads communication error
I’ve never had this problem before it just started recently
I used to burn Maxell DVD-R just fine [that was about a month ago when I got the burner]

Attached Nero Error Log that I got and here is the Nero InfoTools file I got after the scan:

i had the same problem with a NEC ND-3550A DVD-RW DL

i found that the drive is shipped without the region set to anything upon setting the drive to region 1 (can be done by right clicking the drive and choosing properties in device manager) the problem stopped and the drive works great now on all media i tested with maxtr cdr, cdrw and intenso dvd-r, dvdrw and verbatim dvd-r dl media just a suggestion for those of you having this problem also ive noticed that the 3500 series do not work properly with an older ide cable just something to keep in mind


#17

For what its worth, my ND-3500 could not burn the Memorex 16X discs until I upgraded from 2.16 to 2.1A recently. Burns take about 5min. 30 sec. Flashed with NEC auto flasher. First time and it went without a hitch. Read these boards and I backed up (dumped) the old firmware just in case–

Hi -

I’ve run into the same difficlutlies with the same media, Memorex -R 16x, on my NEC ND 3500 AG. Neither Nero 6.1 nor 7.1 would burn - rejected the media. Upgraded to 2.1A on the firmware - problem solved. At least this one.

Turns out while the NEC burner is able to verify and read the burn, none of my LiteOn DVD drives can read the media after the burn - I’ve got several machines, an I’ve tested the burned image with the LiteOn SOHD-167T and the LTD-163. Conclusion (and I hate to be so crass!) - though you can push your writer to accept the media, it’s still hard to read, therefore not suitable for sharing or backups, i.e. the media is, simply put, junk. Which is why it was so cheap at Staples office supplies, and why I am returning the other two unopened spindles of 50 each (they were only 14 bucks! That should have warned me!). I.e stay away from the Memorex 16x. Problem solved (and NO, I am not going to redo the firmware on all of my other drives, junk my two DVD drives in my entertainment system, and so on, just to make this media work…)


#19

UPDATE: I’ve gotten the media to work with all of my DVD drives, including an ancient one. So I take back whart I said about the media - I don’t now what went wrong, but it’s working on all of my PCs.

I have not tested the media on my regular entertainment DVD players yet, so I can’t vouch for that aspect of my comments yet. But I’d like to make sure people know that in terms of all of my drives on my PCs, this media now seems to be writeable by my NEC 3500, and readable after being burned on all of my other DVD ROMS.


#20

Hey
I’m having the EXACT same problem on my NEC 2500A w/ the 1.0A firmware… any help there.???

THanks in advance
