Question about NEC ND-3540A DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

NEC 3530a won't recognize DVD+R DL discs error

I purchased some new Dynex DVD+R DL discs to burn some iso files, but the 3530a won't recognize the discs in the drive. I've tried using Nero, ImgBurn, and Alcohol 120%, but all of these programs are still giving me errors that the "drive is empty" or there is "no disc" when there is a new dual layer disc in the drive. The dvd-rom drive works well with single layer discs. I had recently updated the firmware to 3.01, but it doesn't work. Help!

Cant burn dvd


You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R DL discs not burning in Nero 6


Are you sure that you are putting in a blank disc? What happens when you put the disc inside the DVD writer? does it show up as a blank disc? This could be one of the reason for the multi session disc box getting greyed out.

New blu ray disc purchased does not play. The old ones still work as does the STD versions.


  • I suggest that you install the latest firmware update to resolve the issue. Please click here to download the latest firmware update.
  • It is recommended to use CD -R disc to create the firmware update disc.
  • I hope you're clear with downloading the update from support page. Once you download and save the file in the folder in the computer, you can double click the file to extract.
  • You will be prompted to save the UPDATE_BDPS300_VER0550.ISO file in a folder.

We need to use a burning software which is capable to burning discs from ISO images. ISO image is nothing but a RAW format of burned image.
I will give you the instructions to burn using Nero.. Steps will be almost same in all ISO capable software.
  1. Open installed nero software from computer. You may locate it under Start Menu programs.
  2. Go to File Menu (Some times you will get a wizard where you can select the Image Burning option or burn ISO option)
  3. Navigate the extracted .ISO file we saved in the computer.
  4. follow the onscreen instructions.
  5. Insert the disc when ever Nero asked to insert
Hope this helps. If you need any assistance. Please get back to me. I will be more than happy to assist you. Thanks for understanding.

I copied an original game (Hitman) and burned it but it did not run, may i know how to crack the game so i can play it


what disc did you use to burn the game onto? for Playstation you will have to burn the game on a DVD disc +R for it to work,

if you copied the game from a disc and burnt it like burning a normal disc it may cause errors as well,

download Magic Disc http://download.cnet.com/MagicDisc/3000-7970_4-10383679.html creat an ISO copy from the game disc that you borrowed, once the ICO is created from magic disc, use magic disc as well to mount the ISO file you created thenyou can use Nero or Alchohol burning software, Magic disc will create a virtual disco n your system mount the ISo you created on the virtual drive, then open your burning tool Nero/Alchohol then select copy DVD select the virtual Drive then select the path where the game will be burnt on make sure you use a DVD +R disc ^_^ and that the file is not more than 4.7GB if it is then you will need to use a dual layer DVD + R disc

Were you able to write a single music or another file using Nero? Were you able to burn the image using the Active ISO burner? Did you try a new fresh blank DVD or are using the same DVD again? Try to free some more space from your C drive and then check again.

Unable to Boot


I think you burn into CD\DVD is incorrect. Recopy any Software is OK using ISO, but to find out that your burn that into proper ISO also, It will not work. To burn is again is extracted from ISO back to Bootable Windows Vista DVD.
Here is a a tip, use another program like Nero to burn into image, the file is .NRG or .ISO...
Or for easy tip, try COPY DISC for assurance that it will run again as is.
Good luck!

I suggest you try a better program. It is possible there is something wrong with your drive, but this sounds more like a silly software problem. If you are SURE you have a drive capable of burning, then try this free program. I have a blu ray player, it stopped working with most bluray discs. Found that I needed to update the firmware, but my Windows software couldn't burn an .iso disc. This software can do anything you need. http://cdburnerxp.se/download.php

It is free and works beautifully. I was able to download the program, burn an .iso disc and update my bluray player in minutes.

Memorex DVD+R DL 8.5 GO 8X compatibility


If all you are looking to do is write a DVD (ie, burn ordinary OS-managed files onto DVD, without transcoding, etc.), or write transcoded DVD-structured files, or an .iso image file, then don't even try to use Nero. Use ImgBurn, it is 500% better for those kinds of tasks, and it's freeware. I use it to burn DVDs but use Nero to transcode files and create the VIDEO_TS folder files. I then use ImgBurn to convert them to an .iso file, then burn it to DVD, also using ImgBurn. URL: http://www.imgburn.com/
