I’ve tried to search for all GSA-4167B but nothing seems similar to what I’m seeing. I’m experiencing a problem with the GSA-4167B that I never had with a Pioneer DVR-105, Optorite DD1205, and NEC ND-2510A using Nero 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168. This is happening with DL11 and DL12 versions of the firmware. Drive came with DL11.
A project would burn and verify correctly, but I run into trouble when I take the Taiyo Yuden TYG01 DVD-R and try to mount/verify on another DVD-ROM or burner. My Pioneer DVD-116 (1.22) mounts it but Nero CD-DVD Speed 4.10 shows the first block as bad and then stops scanning. The NEC ND-2510A (2.F9) won’t mount the disk. A notebook running XP SP2 has a LG/HLDS/Goldstar GDR-8081N (0110) that won’t mount the disk. Windows Event Viewer shows bad blocks. I’ve burned more than 200 TYG01s for around 2 years on the 105, DD1205, and 2510A and they all verify on all my other drives.
The drive was replaced by the vendor but this new drive has the same problem. I’ve connected it via
[li]ATAPI as slave (jumper as Slave and CS). Other drives were connected this way without any trouble.
[/li][li]Firewire enclosure (jumper at Master and CS). Current NEC is in this enclosure and works fine.
[/li][li]USB2 via ATAPI-to-USB2 adaptor (jumper as CS).
Note I have never had to delete the ATAPI IDE adaptor in Device Manager. All the drives were plug-and-play.
Anyone have any ideas what’s wrong?
