[qanda]This thread is about the NEC ND-3520A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have the below:
Windows Vista 64 Ultimate
Ubuntu 8.10 x86-64
NEC 3520AW 3.07 firmware
The problem: I cannot read UDF formatted DVDs in this drive in Windows Vista. I can read them in Ubuntu.
In Vista, I used Imgburn to burn a Large 4.xGb file onto a Verbatim DVD+R media with UDF 1.02 selected. It burns successfully and it even verifies the burn successfully.
However after the DVD is ejected and put back in the drive. The DVD Drive mysteriously disappears. I have to goto device manager and re-detect it. At which point if there is no UDF dvd in the drive it will be detected and installed. But when I insert the UDF dvd in the drive it spins up and the Drive disappears.
I have nothing like Daemon tools installed.
When I boot into Ubuntu its a slightly better story. The DVD+r is readable.
I read somewhere about removing the upper and lower filters in the registry. I did that but as soon as I insert the UDF dvd it disappears still. Any takers?
