NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A will only read and burn DVD's, not any type of cd

My NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A will only read dvd's or burn dvd's. it wont reconize that there is a blank cd or audio cd in the writer or any cd if that matters. so in short i cannot play or burn cd's.
I have tried reinstalling the firmware and cleaning the plate with rubbing alcohol. does anyone know what else I can try please.

Nec 2500a dvd wont burn maxwell 16x dvd-r


Hello,
It could be a firmware problem, you can update your firmware but be sure to update to the latest official, stable version. If you have problems only with this type of media and all others are OK, I would recommend you to use different media.

I only can write with 4x maximum while dvd could


DVD burners will only write to the maximum stated.

Also if you are using 4x DVDs then that is all they will burn at without often giving errors when used.

Trying to burn a 4x DVD at lets say 16x can cause burn failure or data corruption.

Cd's on the other hand can burn at lower speeds than they are stated.

To burn DVDs at higher speeds your burner needs to be capable of that speed

Suddenly stopped reading cds but reads dvds


Could be a bad drive, as DVD lasers are a little different than just CD lasers. The laser may be bad for one, but the other can work. I had this issue, had to buy a new drive.

Cannot burn Memorex DVD-R 16x


I hate being so simple on these questions, but these problems are always a process of elimination. First thing you always do in situations like this - try another brand of disc. Good luck!

NEC-3520A Suddenly stop to burn correctly, but reads OK


Have you tried lowering the burn/erase speed? To begin, simply do what you need to do on the lowest speed, and then keep increasing until it gives the error again. This will most likely work. I had this problem and I burn now CDs at 16x.
