[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-4163B. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi
I have LG GSA-4163B flashed to latest firmware released from LG i.e, A106.
Ever since i bought this DVD writer I have been facing issues in reading
8.5gb DVDs which have silver colored recording surface.
Generally these are the DVDs which come along with computer Magazines like Digit, Chip etc and also some Movie discs.
System OS: winXP with SP3.
In the Device properties dialog under Driver tab i can see
Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 7/1/2001
Driver Version: 5.1.2535.0
Digital Signer: Microsoft windows Component Publisher.
all files have file version as 5.1.2600.3311 (xpsp.080212-0003)
But the blue colored 8.5gb discs read/open without any trouble
and there is no trouble with 4.7gb discs in read/write.
[B]What format is these silver colored discs are?
and why the writer does not recognize these disc easily?
need help in fixing this problem.
