Hi,[QUOTE=C987;2461568]I can’t burn DVD-R using ImgBurn. When I try, ImgBurn hangs at “Logical Unit is in process of becoming ready”.[/quote]Seems as if your drive can’t detect the discs properly for whatever reason
However I can burn DVD+R with both programs just fine.
[B]I would really like to be able to burn DVD-R’s can someone help me?[/B]
I’d stick with DVD+R then.
ImgBurn : 126.96.36.199.
Nero Brn. ROM : 188.8.131.52
Your software is ancient. I doubt, this will help, but you should consider updating both softwares. For Nero, get latest 7.x version (it’s a free update).
[QUOTE=C987;2461758]Upgraded the firmware to JG03, unfortunately this didn’t make a difference. I also looked into changing the booktype, so I can burn a DVD+R as DVD-R.[/quote]Booktyping to DVD-R is not defined, but your drive should be able to set the booktype to DVD-ROM, if I remember correctly. [B]EDIT:[/B]Booktyping is often disabled in OEM firmwares.
I suspect, there is something wrong with the drive. Have you ever been able to burn DVD-R?
I just saw, this drive is an OEM drive “made” for big name companies like Dell, HP etc. It might be crippled in some way. (No DVD-RAM support, no bitsetting,…)
Seems as if this is the same drive hardware as H10N or H12N.
But before you try this, I’d recommend to
[li]clean the lens (do not use a cleaning disc!)[/li][li]replace the IDE cable (should be 80wire flat ribbon)[/li][li]try the drive in another computer[/li][/ul]
