first things first in my pc i have a nec 3520 burner and a nec 3500 i have had the pc for around 1 month from pc world and i have a prob burning dvd originaly it had a liteon dvdr in it but i kept getting a no seek complete error in nero so i thought it was the ide cable so i change it and was still getting the same error so i thought i would try different media so i tried tdx, traxdata, ritek, datasafe , datawrite and lots more but still had the same problem so i thought i would swap the burner to nec 3520.

now i have the 3520 i am getting the same problems i have tried burning at a slower speed and tried lots of media and even updated the firmware, but still not solved the problem i happens to around 50 % of dvds i burn if not more!

but if i use the 3520 to read the dvd and the 3500 to burn the dvds it seems to work fine ?

if you require anymore info please let me know

You can check your IDE driver with Nero Info Tool. This nice utility is also very useful when you need other information about your drive. :wink:
