New GH22NS30 won't burn Taiyo DVD+Rs

I just got this GH22NS30 drive to replace my GSA-4163B. It is a SATA drive.

I’m burning an ISO with ImgBurn 2.4.2.0

Using Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD+R, media code YUDEN000-T03-00. They have the correct printing on the hub, so I don’t think they are fakes.

Drive initially tried to burn at 22x. When that failed, I tried at 16x, 8x and 4x.

Every time I get this:

It’s the same error at each speed.

Also tried Staples brand DVD-R discs, media code CMC MAG. AM3, and the disc burnt and verified successfully at 4x.

AFAIK, there’s no reason why this drive shouldn’t be able to write these disc. I can understand it not working at 22x…but at 16 or 8x? I don’t really understand what the errors mean.

Unfortunately I don’t have any other DVD+R media to test with at the moment.

Any help getting this working would be muchly appreciated!

It did burn successfully, it was on verify it failed.

Interestingly, I tried the same tests in Nero with the Taiyo media. Burnt at 12 and 16x, and verified with both Nero and ImgBurn…worked both times.

So it seems ImgBurn has issues writing on these discs properly. But I have no idea why.

LG HL-DT-STDVD-RAM GH22NS30 FW 1.00

VERBATIM DVD+R 16x YUDEN000 T03
Non Printables, Burnt 22x

ISO With ImgBurn 2.4.2.0 With Verify Off.



OK…same drive, essentially the same discs. What could I be doing wrong?

I found out the ones I burnt in Nero at 16x didn’t read well on the wii, but the ones at 12x or 8x seem to work ok so far.

But the ones in ImgBurn don’t work on the computer at all…

Could a setting in ImgBurn cause the discs not to work? Pulsee, if it’s not too much trouble, could you post screenshots of your ImgBurn settings pages? That’s the only thing I can think of so far.

Got this drive yesterday and came with FW 1.01 (08-08-20)

YUDEN000 T03 @8x burn fine with imgburn.

Burned also some MKM-001-00 dual layer disc @4x with success.

Now I have to try yuden @22x
