I’ve got this strage issue regarding my old NEC 3540 and its starting to bother me: during the last 2 years, since i bought this great burner, ive used Verbatim media, and at this time i only use Verbatim DVD+R MCC004 (16x Certified). The thing is that when i burn a DVD using the 16x speed, like ive used to do sometimes without any problems, when i use “Nero Discspeed” to check the reliability of the DVD i’ve got the following results:
Drive: _NEC DVD_RW ND-3540A
Disc: DVD+R (MCC 004)
Selected speed: Maximum
PO failures: n/a
Elapsed time: 4:24
Number of samples: 12580
Average scanning interval: 8.16 ECC
Glitches removed: 0
This results repeats 10 out of 10 DVDs i burn, all dvds get a score of 0 ZERO.
I’ve noticed that sometimes the led on the drive starts blinking when it passes the 60%-70% of the burning process and stays like that until the end.
I can’t tell when this started to happen but i can advance that my PC were recently formatted and it got a fresh new XP on it. I use, like always, Nero Burning Rom, now using v18.104.22.168, my HDD are both Fujitsu MAP3735NP (yes, im a speed freak ) and there is no way that the problem is from the speed from the HDDs, plus i used them before witj sucess with this burner. I’ve got the UDMA activated in the IDE controller and i use the Nvidia drivers for it. I thing this is prety much for now…
Any ideas on what can i do to get this back on track and burn 16x without this issues?
Thanks in advance
