DVD backwards compatability problem

    I have a NEC DVD_RW ND-3500 drive.

    Some months back I had flashed an update for it as Nero and other burners had problems with the Sony DVD-R x25 disks. Well after Christmas and many new DVD backups and recorded DVD-RW stuff from TV to R disks I had to get a new pack. Thought I'd try the ASDA own brand 25 pack DVD-R x8. Problem is that everytime I try to burn (although the disks are displaying DVD-R on my system)I keep getting ILLEGAL DISK message and burn aborted.

    Any one else have problems like this? Do I need to re-flash my drive to an older version or are the disks just crap?

    Your burner does not like the discs. If you still have the manual for your burner it should list the types it can use.

    dvd-r dvd+r dvd-rw dvd+rw. All the cd r & rw's as well.

    Think mine goes up to x16 which should not be a problem as I have burned on DVD-r x8 x16 x25(@max x16) before.

    Use the discs that worked for you. As was noted your burner simply does not like the new ones. One size does not fit all.
