Hi, I’m new in this forum and i need help!
I have bought a new LG gsa h58n and it burns without problems DVD-RW (verbatim)
But it can’t burn DVD-R ( verbatim) and also +R ( gigatain)…I will explain the situation…
With DVD R, it seems to burn with succes, but at an incredible low rate (after 30 min only a 0.2% ando only few MB burned)…
Searching in this forum I have found this post:
The situation is quite similar
in this post seems to come out a solution :
[QUOTE=fwan;1946974]I got LG GSA-H55L DVD writer and when I install it on secondary IDE as master by itself, Wxp DMA auto detect it as multiword DMA 2 mode. The LG DVD will not allow me to write to any DVD disc. (multiword DMA 2 mode is too slow for writing - I found it out below).
I have tried enable DMA66 in registry suggested by others but no effect.
I have tried remove MasterIDchecksum in registry suggested by others but no effect.
Then, I read a posting from user Oshirou at http://www.cdfreaks.com/ stating that he got his DVD working by putting DVD in primary IDE as slave (Hard drive with OS is the primary IDE master).
I give it a try, and it works immediately. Here is my setting:
HD(xp) Primary IDE master UDMA mode 5
LG DVD Primary IDE slave UDMA mode 4
The DVD can now write and read at 16X speed.
Conclusion: for some motherboard (VIA) and Wxp combination, do not install DVD(high speed device) in secondary IDE as master by itself.[/QUOTE]
i have tried, but no effect…
this is my setting:
HD(xp) Primary IDE master UDMA mode 2
LG DVD Primary IDE slave UDMA mode 2

thanks for the future help, and apologize for my baaad english!
