NEC DVD_RW ND-3500AG

I am running on Power MAC G4 10.4.11 and have been using NEC EVE_RW-3500AG DVD burner for years, but now it won't burn 16x DVDs using Toast 6 Titanium. Is there any firmware or anything I should know about updating this burner. It still burns CDs alright and it worked fine on 8X DVDs. Please help me...

    I understand that if I'm having problems with the DVD burner not recognizing the DVD 16x I have a problem with both. The solution to this is not as obvious to me. What can I do to get the burner to read the latest DVDs?

  • debi4u Aug 02, 2008

    I have read on some forum there may be a firmware upgrade for the NEC burner that would help it read the latest DVDs. I don't know what firmware is and if I need that, what specific firmware would I need to upgrade the NEC DVD_RW ND-3500AG burner I have?
    Please help me get to a real solution for this problem.


    Sincerely.....

    What is Binflash (is it software I need to buy, or a free download on some website), and how do I flash the firmware? Is that in English?

    If you're really not that familiar with kind of software and procedure I suggest sak someone there with you that knows how to do that kind of procedure, because if not done properly it may cause some damage on the unit.

It is a combination of the media you are using and the DVD players you are trying them in.

Despite all the hype, +RW/R and -RW/R have about the same success rate in legacy DVD players (~70%, ignoring media issues). The older your DVD player is, the lower the chance on average.

It is possible that you are not able to burn 16X because of the media or type of DVD that you are using now. Also were you using Toast 6 before or did you upgrade?

Nec dvd rw nd 3500ag will not allow me to record on a 16x Memorex DVD-R disc.


There are DVD+R discs and DVD-R discs. It looks as though your burner will only write to the "+R" discs. I believe that is your problem. Try the +R discs which can be purchased individually or in 3 packs just to be sure. Good Luck.

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

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, 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. http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/tm.asp?m=132275&mpage=1𠓝 http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/6500/ Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
