This is a good older 8x writer that may have problems writing to 16x media.

To enable booktype set functionality, you will need to use MadDog 2510 OEM stock firmware 2f9. http://forum.videohelp.com/viewtopic.php?p=1367116#1367116

I doubt that NEC will provide updated firmware in the future, but thanks to
Liggy and Dee effort, now we have some support for faster than 8x media. Check this out for more details: http://forum.videohelp.com/viewtopic.php?p=1526991#1526991

I've had intermittant problems with this drive over the year or so i've had it. Just recently, i bought 100 HP 8x discs DVD-R and started burning coasters right off the bat, 10 coasters in total. I did everything I could possibly do to it before I just reformatted and reinstalled OS.

Now i've burned 7 discs so far with no coasters using the same bundle of discs.

If anyone is having problems with this drive, I can recommend you do these steps:

1: Open it up and clean the drive head off with some alcohol and a q-tip, let dry for a few minutes.

2: Reinstall your Operating System

3: My current Version Firmware is V1.08

Worked well in the beginning, but then as time went on it developed several problems.

It cannot read even what it wrote itself. It is a really bad reader of even new DVDs.
It developed a bug that makes it mis-burn DVDs at 60% but not tell me about it. No media can fix this and nothing I do can make it better.

I cannot say that I am very happy with this burner. It has worked excellent, but right now I can only give it a 3 out of 10.

I've previously rated this drive fantastic, but it's now causing problems; it's reading DVD-Rs extremely slowly, and then experiences read errors as it reaches the outside of the disc. CD-Rs read fine.

Also, it still appears to be writing DVD-Rs fine; the discs test well in other DVD drives, just not the one I burnt it in! It's now out of Warranty, which is a pain - I bought it 16 months ago. I will try playing with firmware etc. when I have the time, and hopefully will be able to fix it, rather than deduce the drive has poor mid-term reliability.

This is a great drive if your system is setup right. Its kind of out of date now that theres a newer 3200 version of the nec drive though thats 16x. but there is one advantage that us old drive owners has is that the 2500a has a volume control that the new drive doesnt have!!! weeeeeee for cd audio!!!
I have this drive hacked with some herri firmware that makes it dual layer and with the riplock off. its certainly worth it for the ripping speed to hack your drive. going from a limit of 2x to 16-20x is just great. it does still depend on the movie encription but its nice to get the most speed out of it. i dont burn anything faster then 4x. Cause well im an anal person when it comes to quality burns. Though it seems most media is supported at its rated speed. I just think its a bad idea to burn anything at 8x. Maybe ill start to burn stuff faster if i get a new 16x drive. I hear the optical pick up of newer drives are better. atleast from the nec standpoint. but if you do have this "old drive" still its just so worth it to hack it now. drives are so cheap that the 16 versions are going for less then 60 dollars now at www.newegg.com i got mine there and its a great place for service, just ask anyone.

k thats my 5 cents worth of reviewing this drive.

With the 1.09 firmware I can now burn cheapo media reliably like Shop4Tech's Sonics(AN31 & Longten 001)at 2x.

I love this burner. I was using the Prodisc 4x DVD-R with no problems but, recently purchased the Prodisc 8x DVD-R and it will default to 4x burn speed. I tried to reset the burn speed on Nero and no change. What should I do?

To convert the ND-2500A to a ND-2510A (double layer), you will need to flash the firmware in DOS using NECND2X00A.EXE. You can get all you need (including binary firmware) from http://tdb.rpc1.org.


Comments posted by TerminalVeloCD from Australia, September 19, 2004. Rated this writer No rating.





Interesting comment on converting the ND-2500A to dual layer capability. I checked the NEC German site and the only firmware with listed availability for the ND-2510 is version 2.16 which they say will only work if you have 2.15 installed. Do you happen to know which firmware version you loaded to override the ND-2500A FW 1.06 or the new FW 1.07?

Thanks

Hi i was just wondering that all nd -2500a dirves can be upgraded to dual layer regardless what company dirve it is. For eg memorex or maddog and also if it can be upgraded does it only writes dvd+r dual layer discs or it aslso writes dvd-r dual layer discs

For anyone else that has problems with this drive, I have to say that it "must be their PC's problem" NOT THIS DRIVE.

The NEC 2500A is by far the best DVD writer I have come across. I have been burning DVDs since the "beta" ages (just like CDs), and this is the best writer on the market today. The new 2510A is still a little shaky, but I'm confident in NEC's quality based on this 2500A kick-ass drive.

It's fast, silent (no noise!), and the compatibility is extremely well. I work at a media factory, so I know! I have thrown every type of grades of discs in this drive, and it will burn it without any problems at all. Most of the time, as I have said earlier, it is something wrong with your PC setup (drivers, other hardware, or software itself).

Also, for those of you who do not know this, NEC drives produce the BEST quality burnt disc compared to any other drives (yes, even the Liteon's). The burnt disc's quality is measured to be 98% close to factory stomped discs. Nothing beats this. And for the price? Well, everyone knows that NEC drives are known to be extremely affordable! Heck! I would pay double the price of any other drive, just to own one. I own 5 of these drives, and have worked the load off of every one of them. Over 3,000 discs burnt, and I believe they still work like the 1st day I bought them.

Don't go with anything else! Even Pioneer drives use NEC chipsets! Stick with NEC and you will not be wrong! By the way, this drive can be easily upgraded to Dual Layer using the 2510A modified firmware. Have tested it, and confirmed to write DVD+R DL discs without any problems. What a deal!

I don't work for NEC, just love their DVD writers!

Thanks!

This is my first DVD writer drive, but it's performed extremely well. No coasters from dozens of (Maxell and TDK) CD-Rs and (Maxell) DVD+Rs. The drive also reads most discs well (have no idea why some people say it's a bad reader). Also has a large, newbie friendly support group modifying the BIOS for this drive, adding support for bit-setting and dual layer media. All in all, this is a great drive!

great burner for less than 100. even better now that it burns DL media! I upgraded it to be a 2510a with herries hacked bios. everything seems to work great and according to nero informatino and dvdinfopro i have a DL recorder. now if i can just find some DL media i can verify what many others already have.

Excellent & quiet drive. Well over 100 discs and no coasters yet! El Cheapo media works great. I Knew before I bought it that it sux at reading discs. Very true - it can't even verify the discs it writes most of the time! But all discs work and verify fine on my Dell DVD Rom - even the generic 50 pack I got for $14! Only problem yet is I haven't been able to burn at 8X. Bought some Ritek Ridata 8X DVD+R's and they burn at 4X. But Maxell (Tao Yunden) 4X burn at 6X (btw - if it starts at 4, goes to 6, & then to 8, that = 6X) I'm using oem firmware 1.06 and want to upgrade it, but a few people said that their computer wouldn't even boot up anymore after the upgrade to 1.07. Might try Herrie's I guess...

I have had no problems writing to Verbatim 4x DVD+RW or to Datawrite Classic "Grey top" 8x DVD-R at full speeds. My aging standalone YELO 800 DVD player read both disks just fine and so did the NEC burner.

However, reading from pressed DVD movies is at present hit or miss. Not sure if it is Win Xp SP1 or the NEC, but it won't always recognise when I've changed disks, causing both Windows and DVD player programs to fall over when attempting to read from a disk which is no longer inserted.

Also it is much worse (it slows down to a crawl) than my Cyberdrive CW058D at reading from CD-Rs. No similar problems on pressed CDs yet though.

I've had my NEC 2500A for over 4 months and have had no problem, I brought it on the advice of this sites reviews and I'm very happy, I use Clone DVD I just prefer to NOT have a huge warning on my movies, but use Dvd X if I don't want a copy for my self. Burn speeds are usually around 4x, but have yet to update firmware to 1.07, I use Princo DVD-R + is extra and I've had no problems so why stuff with it ? I would't mind getting 8x out of it without having to use DVD+R how do I go about that ? I really haven't played around with it yet. But all in all it does the job well. SASFTL , Australia

NEC can'not write onto 8X media.when i've introduced 8X speed media into NEC.
8X media was seen as 2.4X by NEC.
After i've upgraded the firmware from 1.6 to 1.7 , NEC can olly write in 4X speed onto 8x media.
I wonder, would it be possible to write in 8X speed by NEC ND2500A

This is my first dvd writer and have had it a few months with only one coaster produced from roughly forty discs.
Using Herries firmware:)

Have tried the following media:
Infosmart Unbranded White Top (4x) burnt @ 6x
Datawrite "RED" V3 (4x) burnt @ 6x
Ritek Ridisc A Grade (4x) burnt @ 6x
Datasafe Ritek A Grade (4x) burnt @ 6x

Very pleased with this drive and as mentioned before it's very quiet but i would recomend using another dvdrom drive to do the reading side of things , and also the possibility of dual layer firmware working which is looking promising:)

Worked great while it lasted (a little over 1 week). It started making awful grinding sounds and ejecting disks even with commercial CDs. Burned successfully with HP DVD+RW and Maxell DVD-R. Had mixed results with GQ DVD-R.

Caught this at the infamous "Newegg.com" (Great on-line site)for $78.00 one day sale w/tax free and free shipping. Burned several home movies with-out a flaw and still have not flashed to newer firmware. Already happy and great to hear (read) so many positive comments before purchase. Actually based my purchase on this forum.
