Error with LG ATAPI DVD DH20A4H

When I try to burn a master of my video project with Ulead movic Factory 5, the burn process stops and a window pops up that say's disk is not empty, even thought it's a new disk. I've tried multi disk and I still get this.

Thr process has workeed fine up until this pass week. I tried burning a cd with windows media and it worked fine.

I thought it might be a problem with the software so I removed and reloaded movic factory same results.

I loaded movice factory on another system and the bun process worked fine. So I think it's something with the dvd players in this particular system, there are two, both give the same error.

How can I fix this?

I'm a novice, but had the same problem. I followed the manufacturer's advise and went into the Registry and changed the "drive type" to a "1" instead of the "3" that was listed. Apparently, a "3" indicates that the drive is only capable of reding discs. Changing the value to a "1" or "2" enables Windows to viw the drive as a recordable drive. Hope this helps.

I would start by going into my computer, right click on your burner, select properties then the recording tab and uncheck the box "enable CD recording on this device". Windows burning software causes havoc with other recording programs.

I can see the movie playing but I cant hear anything. What can I do? When I click on my dvd drive from the "My Computer" folder, it has an audio and video folder that comes up. There are various files...


The audio_ts folder doesn't have any files, that is not causing the problem. Does the sound work for other things on the computer? Open the volume mixer by double-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. Then check that the volume is not muted for the CD/DVD drive, or turned down too far.

I can't burn cd


You may have exceeded the CD capacity.
A capacity of a CD is about 680MB any thing over that will cause it not to continue.
Leave about 80 mb for leader or ending.

if you click this check if you will be able to see DVD rom at the right side of the registry editor window

Dvd writing failing.


Your machine has more than enough specs to to the job

DVD's speeds are preset by the dvd itself under normal circumstances so trying to change speed may well cause it to fail.

If your dvd says 16x then the burning program will sense that and adjust accordingly.
If you try to burn faster the speed listed on your dvd then it is almost certain to fail.

Nero has tools that help to set it up for the drive that it is going to burn with nero speed and the info tool that usually ships with nero will run diagnostics on the drive and save these setting to use with the burning side of the programs.

I would suggest you re-set anything you might have changed in nero then run the tools and try again.

If you still have any issues post any further information back to this post so that we can assist you easier.
