NEC ND-3520A refuses to burn onto either DVD-R or DVD+RW
Posted on 2005-04-13
I have just bought a NEC ND-3520A DVD burner, but I am having a few problems trying to burn images onto DVD with it. When I look in Windows Explorer the drive is labelled: "DVD-R Drive (D:)". However, when I insert an EMTEC DVD-R disc into the drive, the label turns to "CD Drive (D:)". If you click on the drive you get the error message: "D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Function.".
When I put a Maxell DVD+RW disc into the drive the label also changes to "CD Drive (D:)" and clicking on the drive results in the same error message.
Using Alcohol 120%, when I use the "Image Burning Wizard" to try to burn a CUE file onto the DVD+RW disc, leaving all options as default; when I click "Start" it "Initializes Device..." for a while and then reports the disc as being "Unformatted (DVD+RW)" but asks me to "please insert an empty disc into the following CD/DVD-Recorder to continue.". No image is burned.
When I do the above with the CD-R disc everything is the same except it reports the disc as being "Empty Disc (DVD)".
Can anyone help me to get this to work?
