I have a weird problem with my nec 1300a drive. My drive has been working perfectly since purchased in December and I have successfully written 60 or so dvd's with the drive. Mostly -R media but also +rw. After reinstalling the system I noticed that the drive will not read any disks written previously by the drive and several written on other drives that it could before (multiple brands).
I have tried in two pcs (one intel and one nforce 2 chipset) reinstalled with xp and 2000 and also in Dos. With and without the nforce drivers, Different firmwares hacked and official NEC
The odd thing is that it writes new blank dvds fine and reads origional dvd films without issue. Also cds are fine. Anyone have any ideas?
