GSA 4120b: problem with burning video dvds

Hi all,

Could you help me with the following problem? I have been having problems burning both cds and dvds using my LG GSA 4120B all day today. To which, I’ve decided to update my firmware to A115-2 and update my Nero. Due to the changes, I’ve managed to solve the problems relating to burning cds, i.e. by changing Disc-at-once to Track-at-once. I have also managed to solve issues relating to making data dvds. However, I’ve not managed to solve the problems with burning video dvds. It keeps on failing during the simulation stage; it keeps on saying Device not available. I even tried to make video dvds with image files; again the same problem. I tried DVD Decrypter but I kept on getting I/O errors, reason: the semaphore timeout period has expired.

Below is the log information from me trying to make a video dvd using an image file (which failed during the simulation stage):
