I have a Fujitsu-Siemens notebook Amilo M7405 equipped with NEC 6500A drive (firmware 2.40). I experience severe problems with my NEC drive:
Unable to read files on “low-end” DVDs (Gigamaster-, Fujifilm+), Verbatim etc.
is OK, but not every DVD is Verbatim, indeed. I was told NEC drives don’t like
such “low-ends”, BUT… I don’t like this “feature”. I have tried to burn on
Fujifilm 8x DVD+R and last file on the disk was impossible to read immediately
after the disk was burned. My friend’s Lite-On does the job…
Is there any way to improve the drive? No firmware update is available from
Fujitsu and NEC’s does not work. But I doubt it was of any use…
