HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B doesn't burn DVD's

Hi,
I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4164B…I got it with my Pc…
Now I have a problem.
The DVD burner doesn’t burn DVD :Z
My firmware version is 1.|0
What can I do?

[B]Who[/B] says it wouldn’t burn on DVD?

This drive is GWA, means OEM!

Hi,

Contact support department of your PC manufacturer, if you are still under warranty.

Well…I have been changing things in the Bios and it is working again…but now I can’t read the DVD’s :eek:


#5

Can you describe in detail what you did to try burning DVDs? What software (even version) and what discs (brand/speed)? You didn’t give any details, so we don’t anything to work on.


#6

I tryed burning an image with:
Nero 6.6.1.4
Memorex disks @ 8x speed


#7

And what was the exact error???

Memorex dvd media is crap, by the way.


#8

At the end of a burn Nero will offer the option of saving the log file. Do this & then post the log back here, otherwise there’s very little that we can do to help.

As chef points out Memorex media is of questionable & varying quality. That’s a less offensive way of saying crap.


#9

Sorry…I looked wrong…the disks are Arita disks…my cd’s are from Memorex…
Anyway…I’ll post a log as soon as I burn a DVD :smiley:


#10

Oh yes, please edit the log before posting and remove your Nero serial numbers. Or else unscrupulous people can just steal them for use on their copies of Nero!


#11

Arita DVD - are they G04 discs, rated at 4x maybe?


#12

Here’s the log
I crossflashed my GWA-4164B to a GSA-4166 1.02 btw

Use other media.


#14

I tryed a Samsung dvd but he couldn’t burn that dvd too…


#15

Samsung isn’t a good media, either.

If in doubt, try some Verbatim media - you can buy them in single jewel cases if you only want to test your drive.


#16

If I remember correctly, Arita = B or C grade Ritek. With Ritek’s current quality control, that means those are probably beyond horrible. Samsung is also horrible. Hint : Korean branded media generally=junk.

Sorry mate, but you somehow managed to pick three kinds of awful media to use.

Arachne’s suggestion of Verbatim is sound, although I’d get hold of some DVD+RW discs instead since you are doing all these test burns. That way if the burn fails, you can just erase the disc and reuse it. Verbatim or Ricoh branded DVD+RW should be fine.

Are you running any CD/DVD protection defeating software on your system that runs in the background? From your logs it looks like you may have a few virtual drives, although I am not sure. I asked because those types of software can interfere with burning. If you are running those things, disable them before trying to burn.
