LG GSA-4163 dvd-r write problem

vbimport

#1

Hi,
I’ve just got a LG GSA-4163 oem w/ an enclosure box, hooked by a 2.0 usb. using Nero 6 but it cannot burn a dvd-r disc at all. The disc brand i’m using is Ritek 8x dvd-r. I’ve already wasted 3 disc trying. It seems to be having the same problem everytime in regards to booktype… i’m a complete newbie to this technology, please help…this is the log after it simulates but fail to burn the disc!

First, bitsetting is not necessary or possible on -R media only on +R. That should not be your problem. Second, G05 Ritek media has been less that quality lately. That should not cause your problem. It also is not a good match for the LG drives, but that should not be your problem either. There are two things I would guess. SOme time ago another poster had trouble with a Bytecc enclosure and an LG 4163. His conclusion was that the amperage required by the drive was less than the amperage provided by the enclosure. He found another enclosure and the problem was solved.

The only other possibility, and this is a stretch, is that the G05 media is set to 12X or 16X in the firmware and this is too high for your USB connection. I am assuming that you have a USB 2 port and not a USB 1.1 as this will certainly cause a failure.

Other than that you will have to wait for smarer brains.


#3

Thanks for replying, but about the latter part about the G05 media firmware…what is it actually?? is there any way of changing it’s settings, and i’m using a USB 2.0 connection. Thanks again!!


#4

G05 media, the ID for Ritek -R 8X DVDs, is rated to burn at 8X. Some of the firmware for different burners will allow it to burn at higher speeds. A USB 2 conection cannot sustain a burn at 16X and might have trouble at 12X. If the burning software is set to burn at MAX and the firmware will allow this to go above 8X you could exceed the rate that USB 2 supports. Nero has an infotool in their toolkit that will tell you what speed the inserted media will burn at. Also there should be a way to set the burn speed to 8X right before you start the burn from within Nero.

I don’t think that this is your problem thought. If it were me, I would try some other burning software and possibly check for updates at Nero’s website as well as attempting to burn a data disc to a CD just to eliminate any bugs.


#5

i have set the burn speed to only 4x and have the most updated nero 6.6.0.8 installed, i was able to burn a data dvd once but the verification section did not work, and when i check the disc, there were several corrupted files. i also tried using alcohol 120% and DVDxcopy platinum but they did not work out either. i have 3 disc here that is read as completed by DVD decrypter but have nothing burned on them, not even a burn mark…>.<" please help
is it just the burner defect?? anything i can do to solve the problem??

thanks again for replying

Look here and browse throug the thread. It looks like others have had the same problem.

Could you tell us what kind of processor and chipset you are using in your PC. I have similar problems with the LG4163 and Nero + verification.
