Even if a recorder is supposed to work fine on both +R, -R etc. , often you find out, that due to error correction methor, a device worksd well on one or the other type.

I often get troubles with many DVD low price brands, try testing some good ones like Verbatim, TDK, Sony , Philips etc.
Hope this had been helpful, test both a good brand DVD-R and a Good brand DVD+R.
If it still has problems when finalizing the CD, then it can be the usual lens problem, Or the DVD you are writing is too big in size and your player has problem on the final phase of DVD writing. If Data nearly takes all the 4.7 Gb allowed, there won't be enough space to finalize the DVD.

I bought 2nd hand NEC ND-3540A DVD-RW CD-RW DUAL LAYER REWRITER IDE for the replacement of Philips DVD R/RW Drive (DVD8631/96). However this ND-3540A will cause the ploblem of not only unworkable, but...


since you have been inside your computer and moving leads about some of these may be old and deteriotaed then any movement might

(crack break the circuit even if its slight)

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

I Have A NEC ND-3540A DVD+R/RW Dual Layer Burner, It would not burn on a +R DVD What should I do


First thing to try would be a different brand of disc, there is never any guarantee with which brand of disc working with any specific DVD writer.

If you have tried different brands of disc and the DVD +R still does not work, I would reccomend visiting the manufacturer's website and downloading a firmware update for you specific DVD drive.

Note: Be very careful updating the firmware on the DVD drive, if the wrong firmware is used - or the firmware process not done correctly you can damage your DVD drive.

My cd rom won't detect blank cds


Hi,

try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.

I had roxio creator software and had the drive


After working with Roxio, if you find the software you're looking for, Roxio Tech Support will not be able to give you support. Try contacting Inside Sales or a Roxio Technician and see if they can give you a copy of the software again - it will just depend on where you purchased your original version.

NEC 3540A stopped reading blank DVD+DL


Hi JonPM
Burning a dual layer disk requires a functionality of the drive that is not used in the burning of normal disks. But before we consider that the drive may have a mechanical problem, lets clean out all your temporary garbage. Click on this link and download Cleanup 4.5.2 (http://majorgeeks.com/CleanUp_d4895.html

Instal and run the program. Once it has finished, reboot your computer and give burning onto the DL disk another try. Let me know what happens.
