NEC ND-6650A won't burn Verbatim DVD-R DL



My NEC ND-6650A (Firmware: 103D) on a Dell Inspiron 6000 won’t burn Verbatim DVD-R DLs (MKM 03RD30) although according to the homepage it should. Help anyone?


Welcome to forum.

MKM 03RD30 is rather new media, don’t think Dell 103d firmware supports it. My ND-6650 doesn’t support it either with NEC stock firmware.

DELL is known for spamming their drives with crippled softwares, but also slimtype drives are not the best choice for DL media!


I used MKM 01RD30 now and tried to burn the DVD with either Nero and the DVD writing tool of TMPEnc, but both didn’t work. Does anyone have any other ideas?
