I am not really interested in riplock or bitsetting, but moreso the ability to recognise extra media types. I have a lot of stuff on disks burned with my old 2500a (updated with Herries). However the ND-3540a can't recognise some of the disks (Datawrite Red as one example)

Do the Iggy or Mad Dog firmwares add extra media types as well as the riplock/bitsetting that are not contained in the official firmwares, and if so, which firmware version do you recommend I go for.

Welcome!

Try first the most recent official firmware from NEC and if still the same then go for a patched firmware. This is what I would do.

I have already updated it to 1.03 NEC firmware, and it is still the same, however I don't want to upgrade to a patched firmware if there are no new media types contained in them,

I have no idea. The DVD doesn't even acknowledge a DVD disc is in the drive. DVDinfo  just gives me Media Not Present, so I can't get the ID code

AN35???

Personaly I wouldn't bother to get a firmware in order ot burn those crap discs...avoid them.

If it was a known brand then yes this might be an issue, but with those believe me your drive is not the only one that has problems. Moreover the NEC drives are most known for their ability to burn on unknown mdia, due to their large media list, imagine than this one probably is not listed.
