LG GSA-H10L DVD Not Writing Problem

vbimport

#1

Hi all I need some Help. I have a GSA-H10L which I just recently used the firmware upgrade RPC1 to go from LL10 to LL11. This upgrade has made no difference. The problem I am having is that the drive with burn cd’s but will not burn dvd’s. I keep getting an error with Nero Express(came with the drive). However when I use the disc info button Nero can and does recognize the DVD media and size that is in it but just will not write to it. I have tried 3 different brands of DVD+RW (Memorex, TDK and Sony). I will post the Nero error log that was generated. Any suggestions on this problem will be greatly appreciated! Thanks,

Shaun

Hi and Welcome!

it seems, you are running one of those new intel based suckers without real IDE controllers. The Jmicron chip, the manufacturer of your mainboard has soldered onto it as a replacement, isn’t very good with optical drives, especially LGs are very picky about the controller they are connected to.
You may read the thread about this Jmicron thing in the general optical drives section.

In addition, it would be a good idea to connect the harddisk to one of the native (intel) SATA controllers. Make sure the correct drivers are installed before doing so.

Hi ok thanks for the direction here…my Harddrive is connected only via SATA connection and my LG H10L is solely connected to the only IDE connection on my Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 mobo the cable betwee the mobo and the LG is not connected to any other device.
