I have the NEC ND-3520A flashed with the 1.05 moded firmware.
It seems to be fine with reading my burned disks but today I tried copying three commercial dual layer DVDs; Rear Window & The Love Bug (2 disks) and there are problems with this. DVDDecrypter, "My computer" and DVDInfo Pro are what I am using to determine whatis going on.
Rear window is always identified when I insert the disk.
Love Bug DVD2 took forever to identify the contents as I can hear the drive seeking to find out what is in the drive. DVD decrypter and DVDInfo say there is no medium present. "My Computer" shows there is something in the drive of nearly 7 gigs but it does not recognize it as a video DVD nor will Power DVD play it saying "A disc with an unsupported format in Drive D:".
If I put in something burned by my old Pioneer 105 it is immediately identified. Something burned by this NEC ND-3520A is also immediately identified.
When I put in Love Bug DVD1 the first time it immediately recgonized the disc and decrypter downloaded it. Disc2 I had to load tens of times until it was identified. Now neither DVD1 or 2 will be recgonized and everything says no media is present.
Although it's possible both DVD1 & 2 are Borked, I can't imagine why this would be. They are Disney DVDs but I have never had trouble reading anything until now. I never ripped any commercial disc before flashing the upgrade so I have no prior ripping experience with this drive.
Does this ring any bells?
