PMA Update Failure

Hi guys,

I have a LG GSA-4167B dvd-ram drive. Form some reason it stopped reading and writing DVD’s. plain CD’s are working fine. I upgraded the firmware and still nothing. so someone told me that it might be a problem with my Nero? I use Verbatim DVD’s, it used to work for me for a while.

here’s my Log file of the PMA update failure.
