Help needed - Error messages on LG 4163B

Hi All,

My LG 4163B DVD Writer started to give error messages on burning DVD’s. I have saved the log of these error messages, for which I would appreciate your help, to understand the cause for such errors (note that the burner was burning fine for almost a year ago).

Btw, the burning software used is Nero (version 7.0.0) and firmware is up to date.

Tks in advance,

Start by updating Nero, 7.0.0 was a bugfest.

Two suggestions:

Can you update your Nero (7.0.5.4 is the latest), and try different media? Maybe the 4163 doesn’t play too well with those Optodisc OR8s (I find my own 4163 likes good media, too).

Hope this helps a little! :slight_smile:

The DVD media is Samsung Pleomax DVD+R 8x. Aren’t they good?

Not from what I’ve learned on here (although I think I have heard of members who like them)…

They may burn OK on another burner…but I’m guessing your 4163 just doesn’t like them!

:slight_smile:

These are horrible. :Z There seems to be a high grade and low grade version of OPTODISC OR8. The high grade version is usually quite good on quite a few burners. The low grade version is absolute crap. I don’t think Samsung is known for any decent discs. I can only remember complaints about their branded discs and fake media codes, much like Hyundai discs. They should stick to kitchen appliances and TV sets.

I see on some other posts/forums that burning a DVD in 4300 Mb instead of 4438Mb could solve this problem.

How can I do this in Nero?

By selecting less files?!??
