I just want to report the fact that my new 4167B
cannot read a pre-burned DVD-R format (pre-burned
DVD+R reads without problems).
My system is Linux, and the following message appears
in the log when I attempt to mount a DVD-R disk (the
4167B is /dev/hde):
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
attempt to access beyond end of device
hde: rw=0, want=68, limit=4
isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=hde, iso_blknum=16, block=16
Not being familiar with the driver mechanism, I really
don’t know what this means, but if any others can
decipher this message then please share your insight.
So far I’ve noticed noticed no other read/write problems
with this drive. I’ve also tried the capacitor trick across
the +5V rail – as mentioned in a previous thread --but it
does not alleviate the problem.
Could this be a firmware issue? I will also submit this
report directly to LG Electronics.
