DVD problem

Would someone please help me with a solution.

I have a NEC DVD RW ND-1100A. It seemed to be working fine until I
bought some memorex blanks. It was not able to read these for some
reason and I recall there was a sheet that came with the disks saying
you may need to upgrade the firmware.

So I went to upgrade the firmware to the latest. Since then I am not
able to view any of my DVD's and it still will not recognize the new
memorex disks. It will however let me view basic cdroms.

I'm starting to think I somehow damaged it by trying to play those
memorex disks but value your opinion before I go get a new player
possibly without help.

Thanks!

Will it recognize and play a DVD movie?

I have the same burner. It did not accept memorex disks. I installed
the firmware and it does not with no problems. Perhaps the firmware
upgrade did not install properly. My NEC has no problems.

It sounds like it works for you. Do you remember where you got the
firmware upgrade from? I think I got mine through the dell site. Did
it start to accept the memorex disks then?

Yes I got it from the Dell site. Yes, it did accept the memorex disks.
It accepts both the CD R and the CD R/W disks. I use the DVD +R
Fujifilm disks and also DVD +R Verbatim. I also use Roxio's Easy
Creator 7 with no problems. My PC is a Dimension 8300 3.0. Maybe your
burner software is giving you problems.

Are you using -R or +R. Try another brand media (DVD+R).
