NEC ND-3550A won't burn DVD-Rs

vbimport

#1

Hi,

I own this drive for a few months, it functioned well in the past.\

recently I upgraded to windows Vista and everything was ok at first.

but now, I have more and more problems…

  • DVDRW are burnt ok, but if I try to verify after burn, I get lots of errors (tried both old and new discs, Verbatim)

  • DVD-R are not able to be burnt at all… it just began with reporting power clibaration error and now just an error

  • When I erase a DVD-RW it says it will take 2 min, but it stops and report completion after 30 seconds…

CD-Rs are burnt ok including verifications…

I enclose Nero log, note that the drive does not appear on the scsi-map section.

I had thoughts vista may be related, so I booted with a min-XP (live cd) and started nero 5.5 and did a test , I got the same results…

I tried and different media, and got the same results.

I upgraded to the latest firmware and go the same results…

any idea ???
