i’ve purchased today a GSA 4120. I’ve owned (and own still) a pioneer A05 (with rpc1 + noriplock firmware) and a dw800@dw822 (B3IC) and i think that i’m not new to dvd burning. But… the gsa 4120 makes me crazy…
I can burn a dvd without a problem with my benq dw800 on sec. IDE as master or slave or on a e.g. seperate pci ide controller. But the gsa 4120 has the following problems:
a) On seperate pci controller (promise): Burns a 8x media only with 1.4x!!!
b) On sec. IDE as slave of benq on a 865 board with ICH5 it won’t burn (Illegal command) or win xp throws a blue screen.
c) Only sec. IDC as master (benq as slave) seems to be a stable setting.
Is this normal for a lg dvd burner? Or “just my system”?
PS: Do you know the website where to get firmware updates for LG dvd burners? My burner uses the firmware A100.
