I have big trouble with my new GSA-4120B (bought it also for a friend, with same problems on my system - not testet elsewhere).
When I try to write data to a Verbatim 4x DVD+R Nero 6.3 (newest version) the writing stops at 4200GB or so (at every try it stops at a different position) and Nero complains a ‘focus or tracking error’. I tried it 5 times :a - everytime the same result. The media worked on a NEC1300D - so what is the problem? (and it is not possible to simulate burning on these medias - why?)
I testet a Panasonic DVD-RAM - it works.
I testet a Verbatim 2.4x DVD+R - it works.
I testet a Princo 1x DVD-R - even that worked (and the medias are the worst thing I’ve ever seen)
The drive is configured as Master on the secondary IDE port - alone (80Pin cable, second plugger).
On the first port there is an LG Combo GCC-4120B drive.
My harddrive is connected to a promise controller.
SCSI-Hardware to an Adaptec 29160.
System XP Pro
I hope anyone can help me,
