Im thinking its bad or unsupported media. Disc ID: ISMMBD-R01-00. Bought from ebay about 3 bucks a disc, no branding, made in Macau. Will try other media as soon as I receive my shipment of TDK’s import from Japan.

ISMM is not compatible with most LG burners, it is cheap chinesse media.


what a waste!!! I purchased 20 of them!! any chance with firmware updates that these will be compatible???

And what are fairly inexpensive bd-r’s that are compatible with LG’s???

as far as i know only BH08 based burners from LG with firmware EL02-05 work with ISMM

been doing some quick reading here on this board and other google searches, and in that quick research, I’ve seen some people talk about cross-flashing. Not sure but would this theoritically work if I cross-flashed my drive to a BH08 drive?

nope, won’t work BH08 series are 8x drives (BD only), yours is 6x (BD/HDDVD)

you said 3 bucks a disc, is that that cake that was on ebay for 27 bucks? mostly black cover?

I have BH08 series drive, would you be willing to sell 1-2 disc, i wanted to test it.

aw shucks… oh wells… guess i gotta look for a different media! :doh:

shoots! it came out to like 62 bucks for 20 discs. i’d sell them for like 2 for 6 bucks w/shipping. Let me know! or maybe something else, either way let me know!
