Samsung tsstcorp CD/DVDW SH-W162Z Not burning DVD-R

vbimport

#1

Hello,

I have a samsung tsstcorp CD/DVDW SH-W162Z

My problem is that i can burn DVD+R and DVD+RW but not DVD-R !! Its really frustrating
Previosly i was able to burn both formats, now just the plus

Here are My specs:
-3.2 GHZ
-1.0 GB Ram
-140 or 180 hard drive space

I believe i am using nero 6

Thank You

here is the log file created by nero at the end of the unsuccessful burn:

here is a new firmware for your drive- http://samsungoms.com/eng/firmware/fwdownload/FWDownload.asp?FunctionValue=view&no=508&SearchWord=&SearchMode=&PageNumber=1&product_code=&os_no=


#3

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

As well as the firmware update already mentioned, try reducing the burn speed to something like 8x - 12x with those CMC MAG. AM3 discs, they work best for me on my newer Samsung drives at those speeds.

Completely removing the InCD portion of Nero, and disabling your virtual drive software would also be good steps for troubleshooting.


#4

I updated the firmware still no good.

Instead of getting stuck on 3% for 30 minutes, it gets stuck on 4%.

I also used ‘Burn4free’ usually the burning is smooth but when putting the DVD-R, it just sorta stays on a 100% as well. :confused:

I’ll try removing nero incd as well. Please any other suggestions??


#5

You tried lowering the burn speed?

If these measures don’t help, try a different brand of media, preferably Verbatim for a safe bet.


#6

i removed INcd and i lowered the speed to 12x. Still no go

I tried two brands, imitation and iomega also .Still nothing…Verabatum is not sold where i live.

Any other solutions?
