Problems with LG 8400B and verbatim!




I have a lg 8400b under windows xp. I have flashed any firmware updates yet.

When I burn rewritable cds, it works just fine at 12x.

However, I bought some 40x verbatim blank cds and they do not seem to work at all. When I try to burn them using Nero 5, the process gets stuck at the lead-in stage, the leds of the burner keep on flashing, and the only way to re-gain control is by turning off and on the computer!

Do you think this may be due to the verbatim media? Would a firmware update solve this?

Thanks in advance
