[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H12N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Dear All :

I have this LG GSA-H12N burner, and have had this issue for a while now, I just bought a pack of 100 Blank “Memory” Dual-Layer DVD+R/RW … But I have tried them all, my drive just recognized 4 and rejected the rest completely. Sometimes I get some 8x DL Discs, only ImgBurn recognizes the correct speed, other software like Nero or Ashampoo just sees them as 2.4x Discs, why is that ?

I have just Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009, ImgBurn and UltraIso installed. What could be the problem ? BTW I have the latest Firmware installed. My system is kind of old, a PIV HT 2.8Ghz, nVidia 7800 GS/OC, 2 Seagate 120GB SATA Drives and an Intel D865PERL Mobo …

Please Help !!!

Not surprising at all.
Tell us the code that is stamped on the writing side of the discs :slight_smile:

ok ricoh, don’t know if your burner support them that well.
my nd 3540 doesn’t like these as well, ritek it loves strangely
have you tried verbatim dual layers before??


#6

The Code Is : IFPI HAD01 … Or Something like that, can barely make it out :frowning:

And yes all others work just fine … And excuse me for asking what does all that mean ? I’m new to all of this … :frowning:

You’ve bought fake Ricohs made by Umedisc.
The crap media is to blame for those problems. I hope you can return it :iagree:

probably a bad batch or your drive just don’t like/ know these.


#9

aha about the stampering i didn,t know, fake ricoh’s ??

Nope can’t return them I live in the Middle-East, well I guess I will throw’em in the Bin :frowning:

Most probably all Blank Media over here are fakes except Verbatim and Imation … Sad … Really Sad :frowning:

BTW Any new Firmware Updates for my crappy GSA-H12N, I’m on UL02 …
