This is my first post here, so hello. I am facing a very strange problem with my ND3500 writer.
I have burned several backups of my files using Nero 6. I wanted to be sure so I asked Nero to verify all writes. Everything completed fine at 4x speed on Hypermedia DVD-R’s. Well, I know Hypermedia has crappy disks, but having verified the writes I felt secure.
Well, now a day later, i tried to check something on the disks, and they can’t be read. None of them. In the same drive they were burned and verified. To make things more interesting, I tried reading some disks I burned with my old writer (disks are e3works dvd-r I think), and ND3500 can’t read them either. My other computer with a standard dvd-rom drive, can read all disks burned with the old drive but not with ND3500. To top it all off, my laptop can read all of them, including the new ND3500 burned disks.
Can anyone suggest:
- Do if I have a defective drive?
- Is it just the crappy disks?
- Something else?
BTW, I have tried burning and reading with stock 2.18 firmware and LD v2 b3, all burns at 4x, with identical results.
Thanx a lot.
