I have a friend who has an NEC 1300a, it came with his Emachine 3265. I have tried burning a cheap brand media with shrink and Nero but says illegal media or something along those lines. I also have an Emachine but mine is a 3256 with a NEC 2510a dual layer burer and have burned cheap media with it once so far, had used a pioneer 106 before on the old computer always had great luck with it. Anyway, my NEC worked fine but his won't accept the media, I believe the media is Matrix made by longten. Any ideas?
