Please help

Please help me I am going mad. I bought an LG GSA-2166D a week and a half ago and it’s been nothing but trouble.

Today it will not even recognise blank TDK CD-R80 discs.

It will recognise Infiniti lightscribe CD-R’s but with Nero fails everytime saying “Could not complete disc-at-once”, full log below.

It will write in track at once mode, but I’ve read that’s bad. It will also write fine in i-tunes with copies of the source files.

It worked fine on Saturday morning and I’ve been away all weekend!!!

Anyway, nero log below:

PLEASE HELP ME I AM GOING TO SMASH IT OTHERWISE.

P.S. I’ve scanned all forums to find help but can’t find it.

If it works until last Saturday as you claim then go to Windows\All Programs\ System Tools\System Restore, restore your system to the day before last Saturday, try the testing, and report to this forum again.
