I just got this new OEM Nec 3540A after my Pioneer 106 gave up the ghost.
Everything seemed ok. I am only burning dvd-r discs and am playing them on a newer Panasonic Player and my older JVC player (about 6 years old.)
I have had no problems in writing discs that played ok on the older drive until now!! Discs burned (dvd-r) play ok on the Panasonic, but won’t play properly on the JVC. The JVC is an older player and i know that it has problems playing dvd+r discs. But, these are dvd-r discs that won’t play on this player.
From what I’ve read, i can’t change the book type for -r on the Nec 3540A. Has anyone seen this problem? It seems like a book type problem as all my later players seem to have no problem.
The firmware is 1.01. I am also using Toast 5.2.3 on the Mac to burn the disc.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
