Nec2500a and dvd rw

how come everytime i insert a dvd rw disc , the dvdrw will show up as cd rom ?

Dunno, no problems here with Ritek 2x DVD-RW disks (wish I had some 4x ones though)

have u tried with the dvd+r rw ?


Even if it shows as CD-rom it will still burn the media or …

for my drive , it only can burn on DVD-r RW media but not on the DVD+r RW media

I have no problems with burning DVD+RW @ 4x Speed
Brand = Fujifilm

Media code/Manufacturer ID RICOHJPNW11
Format Capacity 4.35GB(4.67GB)
Book Type DVD+RW
Media Type DVD+RW
Media Id Code Speed 4.0x 5540KBps

Try to format the DVD+rw, it helped me get rid of errors

strange situation happened, after i install the DVDinfo pro 2.28, my DVD writer was able to format the DVD+r RW media

i was so happy

My disks write fine @ 4x with CopyToDVD but I can’t get RecordNow to work. Is there anything that can be done about this?

What firmware are you using?
What version of RecordNow are you using?
Does it give you an error message?
We need more info to help you.

I am using 107v2b5 with RecordNow 4.5 Max. There was no error message but when I choose 4x as the recording speed, RNM says it will be using 1x, which is not supported by DVD+R, so I don’t continue.

I failed to mention that I am using Vebatim DataLifePlus +R and +RW.

107v2b5 is a 2510/HP520i based firmware, and does not work correctly with RecordNow 4.X
