drive will read cd and dvd copy to cd but not dvd?

  ALTEAS 09:13 02 Oct 2007

Can someone please help? I have a fujitsu siemens laptop which for some reason the cd/dvd drive will read and write cds but will only read dvds and refuses to copy to dvd. This seems to have developed since I last reformated my hard drive (I've formated it before and had no problems). Device manager says that the drive is made by nec and the drver is provided by microsoft. I am using nero to burn and have tried to uninstall and reinstall nero but still have had no luck. I have searched the nec website for the driver but have had no luck with this either. device mgr says that the drive is an nec dvd+-rw nd-6500a. Hope someone can help.

click here Possible workaround download Imgburn its free and Try and burn with that if that works then its Nero it will also check for firmware updates for your Drive .

Thanks for that I just tried the firmware update and after unziping everything a message appears saying nec nd-6500 target not found correcly?
