utaeladil -> NEC 2510a and problems writing directly to RW's of any kind (8/22/2004 10:19:48 PM)

I have an NEC ND-2510a and have used it without any problems. So far I have taken home or .avi movies and converted them to DVD's etc. I got my first pack of Fujifilm 4x DVD + RW's (just a 5 pack) and tried to use Nero INCD to allow me to directly modify conents like a floppy disk... whenever I put the disk in the drive, Windows XP pops up the dialog box asking what I'd like to do with the disk...if I select open with Nero INCD it usually pops up and says it was unable to format and to check the drive/disk for compatability. I have not been able to find ANY documentation on which media is possibly more compatable with this model drive. So I go out and buy a 5 pack of Memorex 2x DVD - RW's and they do the same thing. I have noticed one difference though...if I right click on the drive (from MY COMPUTER) with the +RW's in the drive, it fails and says it could not format. If I put the -RW's in the drive, that same format function works. And I can open Nero directly, have it format either RW drive, and it can burn successfully to it.

My question is - does anyone know if INCD works properly with this drive - or do I need to buy a brand of media that this drive is more willing to work with?

FWIW this drive was running the default Firmware of 2.15 that it came with until after I fought this problem for a couple of weeks and decided to download the official 2.16 update. The firmware update seems to have gone through without a hitch...except it did not fix the problem...it still does exactly the same.

Packet writing software are not too reliable. I avoid them. I don't believe it is your drive.

That's like telling someone who is trying to buy a new tire for their car that tires go flat and they should just not use them...

I have had a regular CDRW for years (three actually among all the PC's I have) and they all write to CDRW's just fine in this manner...I am very VERY impressed with the performance of the drive so far...and I imagine that somewhere there should be some type of guide or recommendation as far as which brand of DVD RW media to use with my device. I am getting frustrated...have searched high and low and have not seen anyone post this problem before and cannot find any official compatability chart displaying which media it works with or not... and I have also tried posting this message in several locations but so far no one has even replied but you...and you just tell me not to use it because it doesn't work very well? Surely there has got to be an answer out there somewhere hehe... any other suggestions or recommendations are most welcome.

Thanks!

It not my fault if you are planning to buy a tire with a nail on it.[:)]

Packet writing software are causing problems all the time. In several cases there is no solution. Most users avoid them.[;)]

The only suggestion I have is that you can download the latest InCD version and install ASPI.

InCD 4.3 does not use the system aspi nor priorietary aspi. Hence updating InCD should be enough.
