DVD writer fails



Hi! I have an LG GSA-4163B DVD writer (an internal drive mounted in an external case) trying to burn an iso image to a CD. I’ve tried multiple brands of CD-R, multiple burning software, but it always fails at mid-writing, but it reads written, and factory discs without any problems. Any suggestions?


Welcome kemi242
It is possible your laser is failing due to age possibly just a dirty lens, Have you tried burning a DVD lately? You could move it to your PC for a test if it burns a CD correctly then there is a problem with your enclosure. Be patient others with more knowledge than myself will chime in eventually. If it burns a DVD correctly or fails like the CDs in the enclosure then it’s probably the laser.


Could be even the enclosure giving the issues.
