LG GSA-4163B - Burning freezes computer

vbimport

#1

Today I bought a new DVD burner, after giving up on my last Samsung driver. I had 4 in 5 success rate, where 1 or 2 files would give me CRC errors. I thought it might not be the burners fault, though I bought a new one to find out, thinking I can use the old Samsung on my other comp.

I installed it today, and burned my first disc with no problems. As the last 7 DVDs I had burnt with my previous dvd burner had all falled. But, as I burnt my second discs, the CRC error came back, that appeared on 1 o 2 AVI files, out of the 26 files all up. This always happened, never more than 2 files would get a CRC error, frustrated I looked at the manual.

The manual said to make sure the IDE cable (if that’s the right name for it) is connected with HDD, before I had the burner all alone on an IDE cable. So I hooked it up as a Slave to my main HDD, and this is when the problems began.

At first, I noticed my USB Mouse stopped working, this confused me at first, but after a few minutes in windows, it came back. So I tested my burner, it could read fine. I went to burn a discs, SCSI Command Error, my computer would lock and I’d need to reset.

I looked around, tried some fixes, and now I got rid of the SCSI Command Error, and my computer now locks up before the error even appears. Even more confused, I thought it would be best asking for help instead of looking at other threads, as I might be doing something wrong.

In device manager, all my HDDs/Burner now say SCSI next to them, is that correct?

So my burn status so for with the LG

  1. Success
  2. CRC Errors.
    3>5 SCSI Command Error
    6+ Instant Freeze

Should I go back to the DVD drive being on a seperate IDE cable to the harddrives, though this doesn’t fix my CRC errors that happened on my previous burner aswell?

Log to SCSI Command Error failure:

I can post the logs to the successful burn and the CRC error if needed.

Any help would be appreciated!

Is the motherboard using NVidia chipset? Is the DMA on GSA-4163B off?

It’s better to have ONE IDE device to each IDE channel. If you have only two IDE channels, use only one HDD and one DVD, or have a USB/1394 external case or have a PCI card for IDE (either PATA or SATA) or upgrade your existing HDDs to SATA II or boot from USB and have only DVD drives on IDE.

From the log, it doesn’t seem anything was actually written to that TYG02 disc.

The USB mouse probably was not working temporarily because the PC was re-allocating resources for USB and IDE devices because of the new member GSA-4163B.

NForce 2 Mobo.

I went back to my original setup:

Primary Master, HDD1
Primary Slave, HDD2
Secondary Master, BURNER
Secondary Slave , -

It works, I got one veryified disc with it, but I’ll have to wait to see if the high CRC error rate is gone. Now moved the Samsung over to a machine with 3 HDD’s, tried one burn and reached to 54% before it stopped, which is good so far. Hopefully the drive is faulty which I originally thought.

I’ll do some more burns tomorrow with the LG, and I continue with the 4 in 5 success rate i’ll be back!
