I think that's the first thing I would have done before even attempting to update the Firmware of the ODD, Nec ND-3520A ODD wasting my money on new and more expensive optical media. I understand that it's the manufacturer of the DVD dye, but don't know how good or bad they are.

Virtually all CD and DVD discs get re-branded, which means that one company puts it's name on the disc while another supplies the dyes for them, which in turn results in very different quality levels of optical media. But from my own experience, I know that Verbatim are among the top five best optical Nec ND-3520A ODD manufacturers. Those are my preferred optical media brands.


I think Traxdata and Imation may be worth trying as well. I don't know how bad or good they are today, but I had bad experience with Traxdata in the past, as well as some Fuji-Film media I Nec ND-3520A ODD in high volumes which was basically waste of money, so I don't dare to try any of these two today. But that's another rule of thumb to remember, don't buy high volumes of a product you're unfamiliar with! Verbatim, TDK, and Maxell are the best you can get.

The operation succeeded and the disc was bootable, and I was able to open it in Windows Explorer as well. Several weeks passed after that day and I am assuming that at some point some change must have been done to the operating system Windows Vista bit because I found out my ODD Nec ND-3520A ODD unable to read Data discs. Also, opening a Data disc in Windows Explorer caused it to crash and restart.
