Problem with my new LG GSAS H55N

My first posts…

I seem to have a problem with Nero 6.0 and 7.0 versions with my new LG GSA H55N DVDrw ? With this software installed , the drive appears tempermental, sometimes it can read disks well and once in a while it cannot. I have an older LG DVD RW GSA 4163B and that one has no problem reading the same discs.

Is this a software conflict problem? Or a DVD Rw problem?

WHat other burning software can I use? Best if it is freeware. Thanks
