Nec dvd_rw nd-2510a not burning anything but Verbatem Disks

[qanda]This thread is about the NEC ND-2510A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have had the nec dvd_rw nd-2510a for several years now and have had no trouble burning anything until a few weeks ago. i got some TDK disk and they would not burn. Thought i got a bad batch but they will burn on other computers. It is doing the same thing to some Philips disks as well. Any thoughts on why it would not like these brands?

Maybe the drive is finally dying?

Try updating your firmware! If your still running with the stock original firmware it is outdated. Do a cdfreaks forum search for NEC 2510a firmware. I’m still using an NEC 2500a with over 1000 burns on it. If you are using 16x media you should definitely update the firmware.
