Problem burning dvds with LG GSA-4167BAL

#1

Hi, I’ve been trying to burn several dvd disks (CMC MAG AE1) and it doesn’t get past lead-in and just fails on both 4x and 8x. I’ve tried the same discs in a laptop dvd writer and they work fine but I can’t get them to work on my LG GSA-4167BAL dvd writer, here is the nero error below:

ALSO: I’m using Windows Vista, the latest version of nero, the latest firmware version and I even checked my firmware to see if this type of disc is supported, its the CMC MAG AE1 and its listed in the firmware. I even tried modifying my firmware using Media Code Speed Edit and using dvd identifier to add the media code to the firmware and flashing that but it doesn’t seem to work. Does anyone know what I can do to make them work? Any help will be much appreciated! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: Just to point out I can burn other disks! But I really want these to work if possible!
