lately, since I changed media, burning always fails. But, Ive also burned 40 dvd’s perfectly with this media. Its named Supermedia btw. I have a Lite-On LWD451S which WAS modded to a LWD851 via the firmware
I tried burning with DVD Decrypter, Nero, ImgTool, all give similar errors. Writing the leadin takes feckin ages, around 12 minutes mostly, then the burn continues as usual and at the end I get an “burn failed” error. I forgot to save logs, and Im not about to waste more media. I never burned a coaster before.
The steps I undertook to try and fix this are:
-change HAL from ACPI Uniprocessor to Advanced Power bla bla, u know what I mean
-change various bios options
-more voltage to the chipsets and cpu
-revert the modded LWD851 back to its original state, with official firmware
all to no avail.
Im kinda desperate, I need to burn fast, hdd full, so any suggestions would be awesome
