LG GSA-4120B Focus on tracking solved :)

#1

After Tinkering around with firmware updates, trying older versions to newer version, also installing the drive into different configurations (slave, master, IDE primary, secondary ) and only coming out with the same results (FOCUS ON TRACKING ERROR) All with Memorex DVD+R 8X media manufactured by CMC magnetics I’ve now switched media to Maxell DVD+R 8x and have burned several discs with complete success! Also noting with these 8x discs I’m able to burn in 12X speed, Bonus on that part

Problem solved for me :slight_smile:

… Q: my Maxell 8x DVD+R has a code and id MAXELL 002 are they manufacturing the disc themselves or is this some other company ID?
Also some of my other Maxell 4X are manufactured by RICOHJPN R01

forgot to mention that i got 12X write speed on DVD+R 8X Maxell with firmware A111 :slight_smile:

Maxell 8X DVD+R with id code MAXELL002 is obviously, … well, Maxell, … Right? :slight_smile:

I never believe that switching the drive’s master/slave IDE cable configuration will solve
the focus/tracking issue. How could it be? Its got to do with the laser head servo control.

I had no trouble myself burning a Memorex +R 8X made by CMC Magnetics. I am using A115 firmware. I just copied something and it verified OK using Nero.
Hopefully the rest of the package is OK as well.
