LG GSA-4160B burning DVD DL problems

Hey there, I’ve been recently having problems burning DL memorex dvd’s on my burner. I’ve burned countless CD’s and DVD’s before with no problem, but I just wanted to try the DL discs, but everytime I try to burn something I get errors, either Illegal Disc Errors or Unspecified Disc Error. I don’t normally like posting like this, I liek to figure it out myself, but it’s driving me crazy and I can’t find a solution. Any info helps, thanks I appreciate it. Hopefully this post isn’t to noob like.

I would try some 2.4x rated discs (preferably Verbatim) - I doubt there’s even firmware support for any 8x +R DL.

Plus Verbatim are about the best, most consisten DL discs you can buy anyway.

Did you set this speed?

I did cause I read up that my burner’s max speed for DL discs are 2.4 and everytime I tried to burn a disc (which resulted in failure) the max speed was 5x. And to Arachne, does that mean I can’t use these discs at all because they’re 8x? Cause the label says 2.4-8x so they should be ok right?

also on a side note, when I open up My Computer, my disc drive comes up as CD Drice (D:)

Read down to post #18 & see if this helps as an alternative option for you.

[QUOTE=lorno;2027989]And to Arachne, does that mean I can’t use these discs at all because they’re 8x? Cause the label says 2.4-8x so they should be ok right?[/QUOTE]

The disc’s media code (in this case, RITEK S04 in the log) must be supported in the drive’s firmware - and given that’s an older drive, it’s highly unlikely that there’s support for any 8x +R DL in the firmware. So what it will do is drop back to a “default” write strategy, used for unsupported media.

This may or may not burn OK, only way is to try it. I would use the offered 2.4x instead of 1x.

This is why I said try 2.4x Verbatim +R DL - it’ll be supported in the drive’s firmware.

Edit: I’ve just had a look at the A306 firmware, and Verbatim 2.4x discs (MKM 001) are indeed supported at 2.4x. However, RITEK S04 is not.

Yup, only MKM001 would make sense with this oldish burner…

I have this burner (my very first DVD burner :bow:) and the disc you are trying to burn, is not in the firmware. You should try another DL disc.


All other DVD+R DL listed except MKM001 are biggest el crappo stuff. :stuck_out_tongue:

Ahh, so thank you all for your help lol. You all made a lot of sense :D. Sucks cause by the sounds of it I’m pretty much SOL lol. Well thanks! I was driving myself bonkers trying to figure out why. So now I gotta sell these discs to someone :stuck_out_tongue: lol. So if I’mtrying to to burn a DL disc, how would I know what would be compatible with my burner? Thanks all by the way for your help, I’ve had some comp problems in the past and the forums I replied on were harsh and unhelpful. You all have been awesome :smiley: Thanks

To make sure you have utmost compatibility with your burner, go for Verbatim 2.4x +R DL discs :slight_smile: - it’s hard to say what brands you’d find the other mediacodes (in the firmware) under, so Verbies definitely are your best bet. :slight_smile:

And you’re most welcome. :wink:
