NEC ND 1300A Problems

hello i’ve been having some problems with this drive for a while now. It stopped burning dvds a while ago but i never really used it for that anyway. My main problem is that it only burns about 10% of the data cdr discs i try to burn…the rest fail. However, it burns audio cds pretty consistently but i really need it to burn data cds!

Here is the error log from nero, though it happens in all the other burning software i;ve tried also. In the system error log it gives me a message saying

The early NEC burners weren’t very good CD burners , at least my 1100A wasn’t and it’s almost identical to the 1300.

Quality media like Verbatim is essential and using poor quality CD-R could be the cause.

However, I’d suspect that a new burner like a Benq 1650 or Pioneer 111D would be a sensible next step.

hi thanks for getting back to me. It happens regardless of the cdrs i use, though some are better than others…for the past while i’ve only been using sony or verbatim cdrs. After i posted this query last night, i actually got a disc to burn by switching off the buffer underrun protection…i don’t know if it was that which helped it or if it was just a lucky burn :slight_smile:

anyway thanks for your help…it looks like a new drive is unavoidable.

cheers

Buy a new one.
