I recently updated my DVD Writer from a LG GSA-4081 to a GSA-4163 (dual
layer DVD+R capable), and since I did this Nero hangs when it is started,
with the “Scannig devices” display in the splash screen. If I kill the nero
processes I find the DVD writer is blown away until the system is powered
down and restarted (not just rebooted)
Is it possible that this is caused by the fact that the GSA-4163 is not a “supported”
drive, while the GSA-4081 is ? The Windows write-up says this should not be
a problem, but maybe for the Linux version it is ?
I will admit that this ATAPI drive is hanging on a SCSI converter, but so was the
old one, and it did not have any problems.
