You mention problems at the one hour mark and your burn log indicates both DL and SL burns …as mentioned above by Troy.
What is (are) the nature of the problem(s)? Same problem with both DL and SL media?
Is it a pause/freeze, pixelation…loss of navigation/control of the disc and player, etc.,?
Re: DL media: If this occurs consistently at the 1 hour or so mark, I suspect a problem with the layer break.
Re: SL media: If this occurs consistently toward the end of the disc, I suspect you are burning too close to the edge given the blank media. (Sterling was “very polite”)
Recommend that you use verbatim…made in Taiwan…or Taiyo Yuden media for SL.
For sure, there are lots more possibilities.
First off, when burning to DL media, use only verbatim +R DL, but make certain it is MIS (made in singapore) and not MII (made in India).You’ll need to look on the spindle/paper label. Unfortunately, both MKM 001 (2.4-4X) and MKM 003 (up to 10X) are now manufactured in both locations…sad:
A word about MKM 003 and this is my own personal experience and opinion only. I found these to be excellent, but a bit problematic to get “right”. My Benq 1655 and Liteon LH-20A1S always have burned MKM 001 with great results, but I couldn’t get a consistent burn with the MKM 003’s. I made quite a few changes to the litey without success. The Benq just doesn’t have the firmware support for faster DL burns without sacrificing too much on the SL side.
Ultimately, I was able to use my Samsung 203B with SB01 firmware (and patched for auto bitsetting) and burned at 8X. The results were terrible with MKM 003 when burned at 4X no matter what firmware or burner I tried.
IMO, MKM 001 (MIS) is much less problematic, but the MKM 003 gave me great results…eventually.
Again, I’m just tossing this out there as my experience and nothing more.
If you can find MKM 001 (MIS) then buy 'em…
I have no experience with LG burners. Hopefully, someone will pop in or you can visit the LG subforum here on cdf for some details on your burner, firmware and media.
Hope this helps
