es3 -> 6500A v2.40 (4/13/2005 11:52:28 AM)

hope this won't be off topic... sorry if it is...
I've purchased a laptop (fujitsu siemens) with a NEC 6500A unit. I've experiencing problems when recording cheap media, I think it's very usual and maybe the solution will be flashing new firmware. Should I use the last version (2.24)?
But my big question is that I also have problems READING different media (mainly +R/RW media). My question is: reading problems will be also solved updating software or perhaps this is a malfunction of my unit? does anybody have this kind of problems?

Excuse again if this post is off topic and also my poor English.
Regards from Spain!

es3 thanks for your questions. If your drive has problems reading/writing discs, then it could malfunction else you can try the 2.24 firmware to see if has improved anything...

Hi! thanks Emperor for your quick response...

I finally solved my problem... I returned my laptop to my vendor and they told me that some units have been experiencing problems with some +R/+RW (DVD of course) media. Not only when recording but also when reading this kind of media. I changed my laptop and now I haven't experienced any malfunction for the moment, even this new laptop has also a 6500A with the same firmware.

well sometimes as we can see, the problem is not at the optical drive...[:)]
