LG GSA-4163B burning issue

#1

I hope someone can shed some light this little problem I have. I’ve started using Imgburn on this DVD RW drive and am getting the following error pop up more often than not :

I/O Error!
Device: [0:1:0] HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B A106 (G:) (ATA)
ScsiStatus: 0x02
Interpretation: check Condition
CDB: 2A 00 00 01 52 C0 00 00 20 00
Interpretation: Write (10) - Sectors: 86720 - 86751
Sense Area: 70 00 04 00 00 00 00 10 32 24 00 0C 44 86 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00
Interpretation: Unknown (Internal Target Failure) (0x44, 0x86)

As a consequence the file is not written to the disc and it is coastered. I have been using 2 types of media (one that always used to work with the drive and one that only works with this software) and it sometimes writes and sometimes get this error on both types. I have the latest firmware for the drive (A106) and up to date windows.

I’ve been trying to burn different images and normally have to coaster 4 or 5 discs to get a success.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help

What brands of media are you using. I only recommend Verbatim, and Taiyo Yuden…

Welcome to cdfreaks [I]shadow74uk[/I]. :slight_smile:

Ofcourse, media is the first thing to look at but here it might be more to it.
Drives failure happens at a point where drive recalibrates (ie. evaluates how good the burn/quality is) at ~180kB into burn.
Regarding this is almost a 3y old drive model, the problem is more likely related to the drive itself and you better spend your money on a new burner then continue burning coasters.

Use + media only with the LG4163B, as Harley said use Premium media and do not burn at 12X with dash media, there are no write discriptors in the firmware.

[I]Off topic.[/I][QUOTE=alan1476;2004425]… do not burn at 12X with dash media, there are no write discriptors in the firmware.[/QUOTE]Must be h*ll of a hard task to burn at speed not supported by drive… :bigsmile:

BTW, about your quote; Internal Target Failure. :wink:

Thanks for the replies guys. I am using budget media (yes I know I shouldn’t!!) but one of them has worked all the time and I’ve stuck with it.

I’m burning at the slowest speed possible (either x1 or x2). I’m not in any hurry!!

I’ve been putting off getting a new drive for a while now but I think it is time! Best start looking at reviews.

thanks again
