Now my nec reads ONLY already written dvds :a i have tried changing probably all the firmwares available for my dvd+r. maby u guys could help me. this optical drive pisses really me off :a
Welcome to the forum.It sounds very like your drive is faulty. If you have only had the drive for 7 months it should still be covered under the warranty.
If possible, try the drive in another PC, if it still fails RMA your drive.
