hey. i got the NEC nd3520a OEM from newegg like about 3 months ago and was using it fine. then recently this past week i foudn out that updating the firmware will help the burner read faster depending on wut dvd-r i use and such. so i goto the NEC website and download the latest firmware update. i did everything according to the steps but after i installed the latest firmware. windows wouldnt detect my drive as a dvd burner and nero wouldnt either. so im like wuts going on and go back to the NEC website and on the bottom says dont install this firmware for OEM drives…so does this mean my drive is completely useless and cant burn. or is there a way around this. can i “downgrade” firmware from any websites?
i did this because my 8x dvd-r’s were burning at 6x and thought i wanted it to burn the full 8x
also…i read on other forums that you can “flash the firmware for nero” to make it burn faster or up to the dvd-r’s speed like the 6x for me would burn at the full 8x. is it possible to “flash the firmware for nero”?
thanks a lot guys for any ideas or help you can provide.
