Hi 2.C8-SE users!
With the 2.C8-SE firmware I cannot delete my DVD-RW (previously burned with 2.16). I can still read it, but Nero reports an "invalid disk"-error, when I try to delete it. (both fast and full mode don't work).
My DVD+RW disk works OK.

If this is a normal problem with different firmware, I recommend to delete all RW-disks before flashing to new firmware!

I am running 2.C8 and I can erase DVD+RW just fine with TMPeg DVD Author and DVDInfoPro. Give DVDInfoPro a try.

I'm updating to 2.F9 firmware (i hope this is last release by maddog...and naming of peheripal is correct to NEC DVD_RW ND-3500AG)

I' don't have particular requirements during my burning...do you think this is the correct and optimal firmware's situation for me?

however I will follow your council...i'll search the optical media cerified to 16x speed...even if creed is difficult to find them :-) (((

thanks a lot for you patience...and sorry for my badly/schoolar lang.
bye from Italy

Cyrus,

The 3500A will only burn at 16x on select brands of 8x media. You can find a listing of 8x media that will burn at 16x right here:

http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Reviews/Specific.aspx?ArticleId=10711&PageId=11

Make sure you have Nero CD-DVD speed and Drivespeed set to use your drive's maximum burn speed. These are in the Nero Toolkit folder on your start menu.

I'm kinda confused. I ordered NEC 3500 (should arrive next week), and I'm looking for the new firmware already. So there are firmwares for NEC 3500(with A/with AG) is there difference? Are they same?

I downloaded the 2F9.bin and BinFlash but i'm still not sure do i have the right firmware? Which one is the best firmware? I've once ****ed up a flashing one of my motherboards bios chip but for my relive there were easily replaceable bios chip so i could do the hotswapping but i'm afraid that in dvd drives there isn't :)

Thanks.

Welcome to CDRinfo's Forum!

A and AG are the same.

I don't know the specific firmware, is it new?
