Nec 1300A DVD/RW

Postby kc1di » Sat May 30, 2009 9:40 am

Hi all ,
has anyone had any success getting the NEC 1300A drive to work in Mint. So far I'm not able to get it to recognize any blank discs.
It will play dvd's and read already burnt cdrs but i can not get it to burn any discs. any help appreciated.

I see lots of firmware upgrades to this old burner but I don't see much more

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

if you did not pay for it you might try some firmware upgrade - but read carefully first
