I’d like to share my experience with the forum people that have problems burning with A111 firmware.
It’s more than one mounth I become crazy with my LG 4120B FW A111:
I did’nt succeed to burn a sigle disk that after only a few days it is still correctly visible on a home player. And more, after some weeks also the reading from the LG itself became more and more problematic. Initially I thougt it was a media problem, but after I try with Memorex, Philips and at last with the more expensive TDK -R 8x (Id TTG02) I had more or less the same problem. With TDK, I tried more than 20 disks from different packs, in no one the 8x speed was recognize by DVDINFOPRO, it was only possible to burn at 4x, but with the same few days degradation as before. Nero CDSPEED in no one of them showed a perfect trasfer speed figure.
Yesterday I tried to downgrade the firmware to the A104 and with my surprise DVDINFOPRO now display also the 8x possibility, I made a couple of burn at 8x and for the first time I saw a good burn picture from Nero DVD Speed.
Now I hope also the degradation problem will disappear, but for sure A111 has something against, at least, the TDK 8x -R.
Have Anyone had the same problem?
