LG gh22lp20 Burner problem

[qanda]This thread is about the LG GH22LP20. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello, I’m new to the forums and was looking for help. I have a LG GH22LP20 DVD burner is making me scratch my head. I have burned a large amount of DVD DL media for different purposes with no problems. Actually I have only tried burning DVD DL media in this burner. Well, today I tried to burn a regular dvd +r and it doesn’t burn. I’m using nero essentials and it gets stuck at start…burner starts to spin and sound loud and front green light goes away. I killed three discs trying with the same results…it starts then light in front turn off and just stalls. Any pointers will help greatly. Thanks a bunch!

Current firmware is 1.02
Abit IC7 MaxIII MOBO

What brand of disc, and what is the MID Code? What speed are you burning at?
You should update your firmware to 103 or 104.

Welcome to the forum!

Using Sony DVD + R

My really old BENQ DW1620 on my other comp burns them just fine at 16x… :confused:

I updated LG GH22LP20 firmware to 1.04.
Tried burning at 12x…
I killed six dvds so far…

Why would it burn DVD DLs but not DVDs… Very Very :confused:
