    I have a NEC ND-2510A, and Ive been having a problem. I recently bought a pack of memorex and imation DVD-Rs they dont work, but Ive been buying these sorts of brands for a long time, Nero says illegal disc and DVD decrypter just fails. But I have some cheap generic brand of DVD-Rs (no name on them) and they work fine and so does my memorex DVD-RWs that ive had for more than a year. Ive updated firmware to the newest 2.19 off the NEC site. So Im stuck and please help.

    just because the brand is the same does not mean the disks are the same. Memorex and Imation do not make their own disks, they buy them from whatever maker is cheapest. Stick with the disks that work.

    How old is that drive?

    perhaps because they are poor quality.

    Ok, pal, you know best. But price is no indication of quality or compatibility.
