I just bought an NEC 3550a from New Egg to replace my aging NEC ND-1100A. I was able to install it with no problems (DMA is set, all my burning software recognizes the drive).
Problem is, when I burn a DVD, I can only watch it in the burner itself, it won't work on any set-top players I have (this was never a problem with my old burner). I've used Verbatim, Sony, and Fuji discs, and my results are the same every time: I can view the disc on my Dell PC, but my set-tops give me "disc error" readings-even my old Toshiba 2200 workhorse, which can usually play anything I throw at it.
Any ideas on what I can do? I searched this forum, but didn't find any problems similar to mine.
