Problem win GSA 4163

#1

Hi, i just bought a new 4163 and i have the following problem:

I burn a CD-RW (verbatim 2X) with NERO 6.3.x.x with the verify option ON, the problem is that the verification fails. I tried other media, some disks worked others not. So i tried a second time with a disk that was OK and the verification failed. I even tried with a CDRW and it failed the first time, but the second time it was OK.

Any ideas of where is the problem? (I have the burner here at work and i will try with this PC and Nero 6.6.x.x)

Thanks. Alejandro.

daryl80,

yes, if you do update your 4163B FW to A103 and it helps, please let us know.

I have this drive with A103 FW.

I changed the flat IDE cable from 80 pins to 40 pins, and upgraded the Nero version to 6.6.0.1, i burned 3 DVD-RW without problems, tonigth ill keep trying and see if it fails.

I don’t want to upgrade firmware yet because im afraid it could void the warranty or something. When im sure the drive is ok i will.

Thanks.

Well, i updated the firmware to A103. I have to keep testing with the Verbatim -RW 2X media. I just bought a Verbatim +RW 4x just to make sure the DVD-writer works ok, and… it doesnt work, i tried to burn some MP3s and NEro starts saying Formatting disc (i dont know anything about this) and it fails to format the disc. Then i tried a full erase of the disc y it failed with a message, the drive is not ready. I tried to burn one of the -RW 2x and it worked, tonight i will try burning Imation +R 8x and see what happens. I will test the +RW 4x media on a friend burner.

Questions: What is this formatting thing? If the +RW 4x media works on another burner, can i safely say that is my 4163 problem and i should exchange for a good one?

Thanks. Alejandro.

I would try writing with some other software other than your older version of Nero before I dismissed the LG as defective. Nero has too many problems to keep track of. Try InCD and see if you can do a direct write.


#7

I have Nero 6.6.0.1 is that old? Anyway i will try another software as you suggested.


#8

Failed to burn imation 8X media (teh verification fails). Today i will try another software. Is Nero that bad?


#9

the last nero is 6.6.0.8a ID try burning with something else just to see sonic, roxio, dvd decrypt, or even latest nero i listed before. you really cant go by nero 6.6.0.1 its almost a year old
