Unspecified recorder error (LG GSA-H55L)

[qanda]This thread is about the LG GSA-H55L. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Until the other I have been successfully burning and copying CD/DVD’s. The problem I have now is When either using Nero to burn or DVD Shrink or ConvertXtoDVD, the copying starts but when it gets to burn it freezes or gives an unspecified recorder error and I end up with discs that are unusable. I tried to copy onto a DVD-RW and that worked. I also tried to burn the movie using verify (trying to save my discs), but it successfully verified but still failed to burn. Has anyone got any suggestions.
I have windows XP Pro services pack 3

The error log is as follows.

Check the DMA settings of your drive.

Hi, I have looked at how to check my DMA settings, but it only gives information for the hard drive not the disc drive. Could you point me in the right direction.

This is really strange, I have now successfully burned a DVD using ConvertXtoDVD, everything went perfectly. Tried to copy a disc I had previously copied, but it failed the verification. Could it be that the original disc is causing the problem?
