Sorry, ive read some of the other posts but they seem to have a different kernal type so ill brefly state my problem

Oh and lastly the disks im trying to burn on are TDK, i heard they were a good type, and i tried with some other disks but they didnt work either

I see your firmware is old. The latest is 1.33. You can find it here:

Also note that firmware update will not save a non-working drive.

…and will not make cheap discs magically work.

when i try to update the firmware i get a target not found error

Because your drive is OEM.

You either need to find an update from NEC or you have to use DVRFlash.

any idea where i can find this or?

Nec?
