Well after using my LG 4163-B with many different types of media…I decided to experiment and try out how it performs with DVD-RAM media. Unfortunately, the drive does not recognize the Verbatim DVD-RAM disk at all so I cannot even start from square one and even format it…Explorer does not see it and basically the drive spins up and then stops shortly after popping-in the DVD-RAM disk. NERO (6.6.14) also does not detect the disk either. I normally use Verbatim DVD-R burning at 16X and have no problems in detecting or burning with that disk manufacturer as well as other manufacturers and other types such as DVD±R/W or CD±R/W. The only burning software installed is NERO, Clone DVD and TMPGEnc DVD Author…and yes I recently did a fresh install of XP Pro w/SP2 and tried inserting the disk before NERO after NERO before TMPGEnc DVD Author and after and before Clone DVD and the results were still the same…the DVD-RAM disk was not detected –
Any ideas ?
