DVD Burner woN\'t bUrn DVDS ! - Nero Log attached (LG GH22NS40)

[qanda]This thread is about the LG GH22NS40. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I’ve just had a Brand new System with a Brand New Burner, it burns CD’s fine but won’t burn any DVDs, Data or Visuals.
I’m using Kodak DVD’rs.
It tries to start then comes up with:
Focus or tracking error
&
Could not perform end of disc at once

Here’s the NERO LOg if anyone can help. I’m hoping it’s something simple.
Thanks, in advance.

Hi and Welcome!

there are two possible problem sources:

Terrible media!!!

Try with Verbatim and TY.

Thanks guys, I’ll try that, I apprecaite your reply.
This thing about media really hacks me off. I’ve been using this discs fine on my previous machine and they worked no problem. Why shouldn’t I expect all burners to burn what-ever disc they’re presented with?
