20 Most Recent LG GMA-4020B Super-Multi DVD-RAM/R/RW&CD-R/RW Writer, Original Retail (DVDRRW4020B) Burner Questions & Answers


I am definitely not an expert but even I know no one likes Vista and these days it is frowned on even more as the support for it has been withdrawn.

Windows 2000 is now too old to be of any practical use online. XP is old and limited but is still very popular because it is quite good and it suits most of the people most of the time. I use it myself. I am using it now. In some ways it is superior to Windows 7 that is on my downstairs computer.

I have a friend who is a real computer boffin and he has completely finished with Windows and now uses Linux. He says it is superior in almost every way...

If your graphics was ok before you began your exercise you should not need to buy another. I have just had the same trouble. After loading XP on my work computer I had only 13 colours and most of the device manager was inoperative, effectively preventing me doing anything about it. In this case I believe there was a fault somewhere on the motherboard because not wanting to fiddle around with it I swapped the hard drive into another computer and reloaded XP with no trouble.

I have had trouble in the past. I don't know definitely what was wrong all of the time but a couple of times the systems disc was defective and other times I believe the dvdr wasn't reading the disc very well and once the hard drive was bad. Other times computers haven't worked as expected simply because the bios battery was discharged.

I know my limitations and I am fairly confident if the motherboard and power supply are good, then by fiddling around with the dvdr or changing it for one of the many others I have accumulated, by fiddling around with the systems discs and so forth, they usually eventually work as intended and if they don't it is because there is a motherboard fault I know nothing about and I junk it and move onto the next. The stuff I am working with is around 15 years old and most electronic gear is expected to become tired and develop faults after that time. We wouldn't blame a tv, hi-fi or something for failing after even 10 years so why do we think computers are any different...

Spend $40 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer drive,
and install it to replace your "dead" optical device.

This is less expensive than paying a technician to "trouble-shoot".

Well, since I received a solution from MAXTRIXKHAN, I just wanted to check back with NCIX.com, and here is a recap of what I did, and what they told me...

After a few tries, I had to contact LG Customer service.
I tried to burn to...

-Maxell CD-R, no problems,
-TDK DVD-RW, no problems,
-Verbatim DVD+R, Computer hangs.

Well, I bought this DVD-Writer to replace my old GSA-4167B, and LG customer service told me that this DVD-Writer does not support the Verbatim DVDs.


So, if you have plenty of Verbatim DVDs, you should forget about this writer.

Supported DVDs...
Maxell, Sony, TDK

Will have to send it back to NCIX

So beware
