Question about Hitachi LG GSA-4120 DVD+-RW/RAM 12x Burner W/ Dual Layer Support (GSA4120) Burner

1 Answer

HL-DT-ST-DVD-RWGRA-4120B cannot burn

I have a dvd (HL-DT-ST-DVD-RWGRA-4120B) that will no longer burn dvds. I can read then still. I have done a couple of things: Tried different brand disks and different types (-r, +r, rw) uninstalled/reinstalled drives uninstalled all burning software, then re-installed just NERO - interesting though about Nero is, the log files show that the drive is reconized as a dvd drive, laterin the log it says that the media is incorrect.* Checked the internal cables cleaned the drive Ran windows updates, removed some updates and re-installed them Ran a virus scan *it would seem the media is wrong - but I am using brands and types that I have used before - doesn't explain why windows chnages the drive to a cd rom - except in device manager where it always shows as being a dvd drive.???? I have been trying to get this working for about three days now -I am almost to the pint of re-formatting and starting over - I would rather not do that though if possible. Help!!!!!

Drive might be dead. Try another drive to eliminate the drive as being the problem. Also try DeepBurn writer software.

Burning problems

Windows can only write to CDR disks in its internal drivers, and to burn DVD's requires a 3rd party program such as NERO or NTI.
