Hi there, I’m new here, but I searched through and didn’t see anything that looked like it related to my problem, but apologize if this has already been discussed.
Anyhow, I got my burner yesterday, and I’m having trouble with it reading Fuji discs that were burned with my previous burner (Iomega Super DVD). The strange thing is, it will read CDs (Imation) that I burned with my old burner, and it will read non-Fuji R- DVDs (Great Quality) that I burned with my old burner. It will ALSO read Fuji R- 8x that are burned as video DVDs. But whenever I put in my previously burned Fuji R+'s I just get the typical blank CD/DVD options pop up with the Windows autoplay options. The Fujis are Japanese made 8X R+(RW) DVDs burned to data fromat. I’ve also tried Fuji R+'s and R-'s that I know were burned right after one another, and it will read the R- but not the R+. The program I used to burn them was Nero 6 Ultra Edition v. 22.214.171.124. I went to update the firmware to the version that is supplied on the NEC site, but it said my burner was already at v. 1.05 firmware. I read through the firmware thread, but my technical understanding of all the stuff was there is a little lacking, though, so I’m not sure if I understand everything that’s there in regards to the versions. I also have my DVD burner set as a master on the same IDE with my third hard drive, don’t know if that makes any difference, but I’m just trying to supply as much info as possible. Running XP Professional Service Pack 2 as well.
Anyway, if anyone can give me any advice and/or solutions to this problem, it would be much appreciated, as probably 75% of my 2 or 3 hundred burned DVDs that I’ve got are these Fuji R+ data discs, and so a burner that can’t read them is completely useless to me. Thank you in advance to anyone that can help.
