Help please. error message on install - buffalo brx816u2

The problem is that the Cyberlink software that comes with the drive cannot be installed on a Windows N Edition (Microsoft created the 'N' edition following a European lawsuit). In order to fix this problem in Windows media player needs to be installed on your computer first.

You can obtain a copy free, direct from Microsoft here-

you will then need to restart your computer and install your drive software again.

Thats the message you get with a corrupt install or registry error.
You should try an uninstall, then use something like Advanced System Care to clean up your registry. While you're at it do a scandisk to correct file errors reboot the PC and try installing again.

Invalid book address

this is to do with settings in Nero.
The book-Type is settings For CD/DVD et,c.
The actual Format the disk has to be written in. If you,ve got the book-type set to write a CD for example, and burned a DVD. it would error as it needs to write more data, than the Disk Allows.
CD 650mb. DVD 4370 mb or equivalent.
I,d uninstall-re-install nero, and ensure you select your type of disk to Compile. Which will automatically select The Correct Book-Type for The compilation required.

NEC ND-6500A Cant burn DVD-R

I figured out what was causing the problem with my NEC 6500A on my Dell laptop: The Sony Picture Motion Browser software that I was using to burn DVD's is only compatible up to Service Pack 2 of Windows XP. The day after I installed Service Pack 3, the software stopped burning DVD's. So I uninstalled Service Pack 3, rebooted, unistalled the Sony PMB software, rebooted and re-installed the Sony PMB software and I can now burn DVD's again. So check whether the software you're burning your DVD's with is compatible with whatever version of your operating system you're operating with. Hope this helps someone else!

NEC nd 6500a

Hi, I think that it's a firmware issue. If the unit is till covered by warranty, you may have to bring it back for replacement. When doing so, it may be to your advantage to bring the PC while it is still attached and blank CDs and DVDs just to demonstrate the particular failure and likewise to be able to test if and when it would be replaced. If for some reason, you would want to try DIY, please look over these sites that you may have an idea.𠓝 Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

the bus settings may be the settings that have been changed by roxio, if you havent uninstalled the previous burning programme. Try uninstalling any burning programme you have, restart the pc and install the programme you require. If it continues you may need to uninstall the drive, by way of :- my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down list to dvd/cdrom drives and click '+' sign to your dvd line and right click and uninstall. Restart pc and it will automaticaly install again, ready for use.
