Question about NEC ND-3550A-KIT DVD±RW Burner

Open Question

Stops burning at 99%

Hi, the problem I am having is the following: no matter what software I use, all of a sudden I cant burn DVD's no more. When using Nero the program stops at 99% and restarts, the disc is lost. Like I said I have used other software, to no avail either. This is getting hopeless, I have lost quite a few discs already. I tried updating the firmware I downloaded from NEC website, (2.1) but that tells me: target is not found correctly. And stops there...
As far as I can see there is no good explanation on what to do next on the NEC website.
Windows tells me that the drive is working fine, has the latests driver etc etc. This drive reads fine, btw. The problem is with the burning, that all of a sudden and out of the blue didn't work anymore...
All help is appreciated!

DVD wont burn with dvd maker gets to 99% then stops

When was the last time it was working fine?

• Do you have any third party CDDVD burning software?
• Are you able to burn DVD's using windows explorer?

First I would suggest that you try burning using another DVD and check if it works.

Method 1

Try one or more of the following:
Verify that the DVD burner is connected properly to your computer and powered on, and that any necessary software drivers for the DVD burner are installed. You can check your hardware settings in the Device Manager by doing the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Hardware and Sound.
3. Click Device Manager.
• Make sure that the videos you're trying to burn are not corrupted. To see whether the videos you want to burn is corrupted, try playing or viewing them using Windows Media Player. If the files don't play using the Player, Windows DVD Maker cannot burn them.

• Choose a slower burning speed for your DVD burner by doing the following:
1. Return to the Add pictures and video to the DVD page, and then click Options.
2. In the DVD burner speed box, select Medium or Slow.

Troubleshoot problems with creating a DVD-Video using Windows DVD Maker

Change Windows DVD Maker DVD-Video settings

Method 2

Check if you are able to burn DVD successfully using Windows Explorer.
Burn a CD or DVD

Method 3

Check in the event viewer to know the cause of the DVD burning failure and post back with the details.
What information appears in event logs? (Event Viewer)

Hope this helps!

I have always been using Nero burn software with my LG GSA-2166D DVD RW. Now I bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10. No any writing process has been successful. I have since yesterday spoiled 10 DVD's....

speed of source data is too slow = the hard disk cannot deliver the data fast enough and the burning process stops; this is a sign of a severely fragmented file system and very charged background processes: defragment your hard disk, stop using other programs when burning a disk and use 8X as a recording speed.
 Track Following Error = the laser head in the burner is no longer capable of following the track it has itself burned - the lens is dirty, clean it.

I want to know if a sata dvd writer can burn dvd


Are you kidding hehehehe it's a joke, Of course it can burn, if your unit is a DVD writer it can burn a DVD no matter if it is a IDE or SATA type of cable connector. Be sure that you will have a burner software (like Nero, power to go, etc.) installed in your computer.

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!

Hi ,
Make sure you still have the software stored on your machine or on cd .
Please delete software and go to this site :
Follow instructions to reinstall software .
If same issue remains , try to remember what changes you eventually made to your machine just before problem happened and delete the changes to see what happens .
You can also try to restore your system to an earlier date , provided this is possible with Apple .
Hope this helps .
Thank you for visiting FixYa .
