NEC ND-3540A & Xbox360 backups

Has anyone burned a Xbox 360 game with the NEC ND-3540A? Did you have the original 1.01 fimware, the official firmware update, or one of the custom firmware from this page? http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/NEC-ND-3540A/

Here’s my problem:

ImgBurn error “no seek complete”

Ok, I bought a 5 pack of Verbatim DVD+R DL 8x at “Best” Buy for $20.
I made sure they were made in Singapore. I know I paid too much for them and wouldn’t mind too much if I at least got 3 games out of the 5 pack, but I just made three $4 coasters after the first successful burn. The first one works perfectly but I keep getting this error when I try to burn another game:

“Finalise Disk Failed…Reason: No Seek Complete”

Im using a NEC ND-3540A burner with the 1.01 firmware. Each game is iso/.dvd

Here’s the steps I took for the first successful burn:

tools/settings/write
selected “user specified” under layer break and entered the value “1913760”
opened the .dvd file
then tools/drive/change book type and clicked the NEC tab. In the “change for” box, I chose “Drive (for DVD+R DL media)”
then in the “New Setting” box I chose “DVD-ROM”
Set my write speed to 2.4x and clicked burn.

The first game (HL Orange Box) worked fine. The second one (Burnout Paradise) failed with the above error.
Same with the third try (Ninja Gaiden 2). So I tried again with layer break set to “calculate optimal” because I read somewhere you don’t need to set the 1913760 value if you’re burning from the .dvd file. I also noticed under the write tab that “auto change book type” is checked by default, so I skipped the “tools/drive/change book type” step.
I got the same error with these new settings.

So how come the first burn worked but the last three get that same error? Is it possible that my NEC’s firmware got corrupted from the first burn?

Here’s my ImgBurn log:

Well, I got it working.
Just upgraded the firmware to the original NEC firmware 1.04.
