I’m desperate. I bought an LG GSA-4160B drive to be able to burn DL DVD’s. The drive burns single layer discs just fine, but it doesn’t recognize the Verbatim double layer DVD+R I’ve bought. When I insert such a disc in the drive, it begins to flash the light and hum and crackle. Disc Info of Nero 6 tries and tries to read the disc, but finally says that the drive is either not ready or it doesn’t have a disc in it. When I double click My Computer, the window opens, but hangs immediately.
I’ve already upgraded the firmware, Windows XP and Nero, but nothing seems to help. Finally I thought the drive was broken and took it to the store I bought it from. I got another one, but it has all the same problems.
What could be wrong? I thought Verbatim discs should be reliable.
Help me please, I’m on my knees…
