I just purchased a NEC ND-3450A DVD -+RW burner.  I also purchased some Memorex -R 16x disks to burn and they will not burn ("cannot write medium - incompatible format" using Roxio Disk Copier).  The NEC reads DVDs just fine.  I downloaded a firmware program from the Dell support site (I found out the 3450A is a Dell burner). The program is K34503CQ.exe.  I have a Dell computer running XP.  When I run the firmware update program I get an error that says:  "Target NEC ND-3450A is not found correctly".  Would updating the firmware help with writing the Memorex DVDs?  How do I fix the firmware upgrade problem?

I just got my first DL DVD, m nec 3450A dvd has burnt 100's of single layer dvd's of all brands without a problem

I put in a Ridata Double Layer 8.5GB DVD+R 2.4X

Under my computer it changes the drive to a cdrom drive and all programs think it's a cd rom.

Any idea what the issue is?  I'm working on getting new media to try out.  I have firmware 1.03c or whatever it is.

Thanks SO many with any information!!!

mikemar - Look for Verbatim DVD+R DL media and you'll probably have better luck.  In my eyes, Verbatim is all you should buy for DL needs.

I am going to try some that a buddy has and see if that works.

Let's say for arguments sake that it DOESN'T work and I get the same problem

What can I do? I already have the latest firmware

why does it show it as a cdrom drive when I have the DL disc in there?

Have you actually tried to burn to the RiData +R DL media with an application?  Or is the disc simply not recognized when you try to burn?  That is what I am guessing is happening.

well no application will burn (copytodvd, dvd decrypter, nero) since they all see it as a cdrom and not enough room

my computer changes the name of the drive displayed from dvdrom to cdrom drive

so i can't burn it :(

there is no firmware update listed for the 3450A (it's the 3540 on the site) 103C is the latest for the drive.
