Welcome everyone. Its great to see such a big support for our cd/dvd drives.
Tribute to all those who know how to solve our problems.
If may I I would like to ask about mine problem. I try find cure for that but so far I found only ppl who asked questions about it. Anyway.
I got 2x drives NEC ND-3550A. They both got problem with reading some DVDs I recorded by those drives and also my old Lite-On drive.
Most of the time I use Memorex or Maxell DVD+R. Since I got those drives I got problems with reading all diffrent media. On one of those drives I upgraded firmware (first tried with 1.04 RPC, them I tried 1.05 RPC) but it didnt help. After all I tryed to go back to 1.04 OEM but still nothing. Then I went to 1.Y4 or 05 (not sure now) - still the same but know funny thing happend in Nero. I use 188.8.131.52. I got funny number as option to burn.

I dont know what the hell. As soon I will finish this post I will try get newer version of nero to try fix that, but the main concern is to read all disk I got with some really value stuf.
