I recently bought a cake tub of 25 Verbatim DVD+RW (4x cert) blank media (Stock no. 43489) with the intention of backing up some old software before the originals become unusable due to damage. The drive I am using is the LG GSA H10A Firmware Rev JL02. The drive has no trouble reading any retail software or other old backups I have (mostly on CDRW), but it refuses to recognise the presence of the Verbatim DVD+RW media in the tray.
My questions to the community are:
Would this problem be solved with a firmware update?
Do either the LG GSA H10A or Verbatim DVD+RW media generally suffer with incompatibility issues?..or are LG and Verbatim just a bad match.
If I wanted to buy a second DVD RW/RAM/HD drive and buy further blank media what would you recommend I buy?
I just want to get the best possible results and the have a drive & blank media that gives me the best possible compatibility. I have never flashed firmware before so am a little apprehensive about it. However, if the problem can be solved by updating from JL02 then I will certainly give it a try.
Thanks in advance.
