I bought a NEC 3500AG after reading some good reviews, so I updated Nero to the latest version but not before testing my older version to make sure I had a good drive! Everything worked great! So I went ahead and upgraded. What a mistake New nero would not let me copy any DVD, picture, music any at all. So I contacted nero who said it was a bug and they were working on it.
So deleted new nero and went back to old, and no copy feature worked on it! great I thought so I used this forum and updated the firm ware to 2.18 and finally it worked!
Surely you should not have to mess around with a drive and software to get it to work. Im sure a complete novice would have just returned it.
Just a heads up to anyone with an NEC 3500AG hoping to use new nero.
