LG GSA-H20L: this drive drives me crazy! Help!

HI,

this burner drives me crazy! No way to burn CD Audio or MP3, but I’ve no problems with DVDs or data CDs!!!

I really don’t know what to do!

If anybody could help me, I can tell you that: I tried several media type, it’s slave to another burner and follows a Nero error log (tried also other softwares, but no news…)

THANK YOU!!! :bow:

I think you should update Nero because 6.6.0.3 is older than your LG drive. Get 6.6.1.4 from the Nero website or 6.6.1.6 from here (link). Use CleanTool from the Nero site to uninstall your current version and do [U]not[/U] install InCD again.

If that doesn’t help, test the LG as Single Master (no Slave connected). Make sure to use 80-wire ribbon cable (try with a new one).

sorry for going off topic, but what is Nero 6.6.1.6 ???
this is the first i’ve ever heard of it. i was sure (for a long time now) that 6.6.1.4 was the last Nero 6 version.
