I have an NEC 3550 made after March 2006 (stock firmware 1.05), and have yet to get it to burn DVDâ€™s correctly. Running XP and using Nero, I can transfer video from my camcorder and insert the chapter markers just fine, but the resulting burned DVD has glitches or freezing at the chapter markers. I have been unable to find a combination of settings that eliminates this. Burning the disc image onto the hard drive and playing it back works fine, no glitches. Playing a commercially released DVD with chapter marks works fine, no glitches. Everything on the Nero Info Tool looks goodâ€¦…am I missing something in the settings? Could this be a driver problem of some sort? Or perhaps a firmware problem? I would like to upgrade the firmware to get the speedups, bitsetting, and rpc1, but wanted to try to successfully burn a DVD first. Am I correct in this approach? As far as what I want to get out of a firmware upgrade, it appears that Deeâ€™s 1.Y5 would work best in my applicationâ€¦.am I correct in this? Would Deeâ€™s 1.Y4 or 1.Y2 also work? Or is there some other firmware upgrade that is more highly recommended? Nothing Iâ€™ve read has enabled me to figure out this problem, and itâ€™s been awhile, so Iâ€™m finally appealing to the experts for helpâ€¦…TIA!
