- Cannot burn CDs - _NEC DVD -RW ND-6500A

I have a problem with a DVD-RW/CD-RW combo drive: _NEC DVD -RW ND-6500A
firmware: 2.24. First, it didn't want to burn any DVDs (Nero was just
freezing). After a reformat, now it burns DVDs but it doesn't burn CDs
(It says: "your compilation cannot be written on this kind of disk").
I've tried three different brand of CDs, but it just consider them as
non-writable. The drive works perfectly with both DVDs and CDs if I
take it out of the laptop and put in in a desktop, using a special
adapter. So the problem seems to be something else than the drive
What the hell could be wrong with this laptop?

from it that eventually hang my system. I also can't read back DVD's
that I write with it. I figured it was a software incompatibility
problem (I'm running an old version of Linux on that machine) and
wanted to get around to upgrading kernels before getting upset.
I wonder if the ND-6500A itself is the culprit (firmware bugs).
I'm not sure what firmware rev I have.
