I have just got a Fujitsu Siemens Laptop (Amilo) which comes with a NEC ND-6500A with firmware version 2.40.
However i can not get it to burn on a dual layer disc at all. I have tried datawrite and also traxdata (Ritek) discs.
Both show up in nero and dvd decrypter disc info but fail when burning anything to them. Nero says Invalid Media or illegal Media.
Decrypter gives me I/O error - Device: 1:0:0 _NEC DVD±R/W ND-6500A 2.40 (D:) (ATA)
Interpretation Check Condition
CDB: 2A 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00
Interpretation Write (10) - Sectors 0-31
Cannot Write Medium - Incompatible Format
I dont know if the drive is faulty or if its the laptop or the firmware.
The laptop box says the drive supports DL discs but i can not burn to one at all.
I did notice that i think nero always tries to choose booktype DVD-ROM whatever that means.
I am loosing the battle now…
