I currently have a nec 2510a and a 2500a which I use for making copies of DVD’s that are made on a JVC DVD recorder. One pc has XP and the other 2000 I use the latest version of nero 6 to make the copies and upgraded the firmware for both drives from the NEC German site. Went thru all the troubleshooting tips found on the forum
I often have failures due to read errors, during the image creating process.
I have used Verbatum, Prodisc, Ritek -R media just to name a few and have come to the conclusion after reading thru the nec forums that neither drive is very good at reading discs. I am not interested in burning at any super fast speeds just want consistent performance making copies.
Over at the NEC forum it was suggested to me to get a different DVD-rom drive(Sony 1621/1612) as a reader then use the nec drives to burn.
My question is for you guys that use Pioneers 108 do you also use a different drive for reading and then burn with the 108?
