I have got a new SPD600-DVD-Rewriter in guarantee-exchange for an defect Philips DVDR 1645. It burns better than the 1645. No problems with Nero 7 Full Version and Win XP Home, except sometimes to long access time, when putting in a DL-DVD.

I recently bought a Philips SPD6000FD/00 and discovered that it would not work on either a CD or DVD copy - my setup: Windows XP Prof. (fully updated) and Nero Vers. 7 Ultra (fully updated). Nero reported "Drive not ready" using Philips as the destination. Also, sometimes, when starting Windows the drive could not be seen by Windows Explorer. I replaced the drive with a new one and had exactly the same results.
I emailed Philips Support and their reply was that I should have used the Nero 6.0 supplied with the Drive - which won't allow me to copy from one Drive to another as Nero 6.0 only works on the Drive that it shipped with.
One drive going back to the shop for a refund!
