Go to the NEC.com website, and see all the dvd media types that the ND-6500A can use. I had a similar problem trying to use 1-16x on mine, it would not burn to them - gave me all kinds of error messages; then I used a TDK 4x DVD-R; worked fine; granted since it has 8x capability, I'd like to burn at the fastest rate - this was for a backup job, so only burned at 3.1 anyway. the media may fix your problem. worth a try.

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.

Where do i get drivers for my nec dvd+-rw 6650a

http://dell.driversdown.com/dell-drivers-downloads/NEC-ND-6500A-Slim-8X-DVD+--RW_18812.shtml

 

Here is link for Dell drivers fro your NEC DVD. 

If you do note have a Dell, go to the home web page of youe brand and find Support and / or Downloads, and search for the driver there. 

This is usually a fairly simple process, if you have the model number of the PC

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

Cd/dvd drive device is broke

There is a reason most DVD readers, writers are so cheep is because they are warranted for 1 year. If you're NEC is less than a year old & you have a recipt you can send it back to NEC for a new one. If you need another DVD player to replace a bad DVD drive & want to buy one, I can suggest a couple.

It would not hurt to install the firmware for you're current DVD drive. This might breath life back to the drive. (Might)! Nothing to loose. Download the firmware from this link: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Nec/Nec-ND-6500A-firmware-424.shtml

Good Luck!

I have problem with my AVERATEC COmputer

This is a common issue with NEC DVD burners, assuming that your NEC DVD burner cannot read and write DVDs anymore. I had a similar issue with my NEC DVD burner, which couldn't read and write CDs, but DVDs successfully. This is usually due to wear and tear of constant usage of the drive itself and sometimes mechanisms inside the DVD burner cease to work. While Windows Troubleshooting, uninstalling and re-installing the drive are suggestable, I am afraid the only option is a complete DVD burner replacement.

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 DVD±RW DON'T READ CD

I have encountered this problem numerous times and, while I'm not sure of the exact cause, the remedy that works 90% of the time for me is to create a 1:1 solution of isopropyl alcohol & distilled water and to GENTLY brush the laser with a cotton swab tipped with this solution.  Afterwards, use the other side of the swab to completely dry off the laser, ensuring that absolutely no cotton fibers are left behind.  Good luck!
