Help the newb with a GH22NP20

[qanda]This thread is about the LG GH22LP20. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello all. I have to come to you as a last resort (no offense!) with this burning issue I’m having. I’ll try to make this short and sweet.

It allllllll started out a few months ago. I had an older, different brand burner which refused to burn DVDs any longer. It would still burn CDs but thats not what I need. So ok, no biggy. I bought a new DVD burner, the LG GH22NP20. Installed. Same issue. Will burn CDs, will not burn DVDs. So I thought, man maybe all this time my media is bad. I borrowed a different brand from a neighbor. Same problem, no burn. Hmm. Ok, well maybe Nero has a bug in it. Uninstalled Nero and installed Ashampoo. Same result. Burns CDs, wont burn a DVD. I cant find any downloadable drivers or anything and the only thing I did find was a “firmware” which I attempted to install and notice no difference.

Someone please help! Here is a log from when I was using Nero. And this is also before the firmware update but as I said, none of that has made any difference anyway. Maybe one of you experts will see something in this log that sticks out.

[QUOTE=G_Ivan Awfulitch;2206700]DMA is off for that drive and it doesn’t like the media you are using[/QUOTE]

Soooooo, how do I fix that?

If it helps, I’ve read this thread

http://club.cdfreaks.com/1712829-post5.html

And when I go through those steps, all the boxes already say

Transfer mode : DMA if available

and

Current transfer mode : Ultra DMA Mode 4

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
