I have a DELL computer with the NEC ND-2100AD DVD+RW drive. I was trying to get it to burn DVD-R discs.
I was able to run the DriveConvert and NECWinFlash.exe software to do the following:
- I used DriveConvert to convert the drive from ND-2100AD to ND-2500A
- I used the Binflash (GUI) to Scan, Dump and Flash the drive using the ND- 2500A firmware I downloaded from the NEC site.
- I rebooted
- I tried to change the booktype to DVD-RW or DVD-R and in both cases I got the following message: "The booktype operation is not supported with your firmware".
I then tried to burn a DVD-R disc and I got an Error message (unable to write...)at the beginning of the write. I used 3 different brand new Memorex DVD-R discs with the same result.
Any comments are appreciated. Thanks.
