As with all writers eventually they fault at the lens and it gets out of line and cannot read discs, you can try the usual thing of checking LG for any firmware updates, but first:- Go to my computer>right click>hardware tab>device manager, then down list to cd/dvd drives and click '+' sign and highlight your writer, right click on it and select uninstall. Restart PC and it will be automatically re installed, try again and if no change you will need to replace the drive as they are cheaper nowadays.

I can't burn dual layer discs... I have already updated my firmware, I already tried many many programs (such as Nero, Ashampoo and other free programs) and I tried many types of discs... I currently...


GSA-4167B hmmm.. thats an old drive... i believe you past it product life (means that you writer can not recognize correctly new modern media such dvd disks.
Reports are: that your drive is able to write on DVD+R Double layer 3.3x-8x (CAV).
Please be sure that your writing speed is between 4x-8x (my favorite speeds for quality DVD disc burning)
Since the drive have already some writing issues... and as you say that it fails on all media..i would suggest you to buy a new one.
If you desperately need IDE adapter you can find on ebay some converter from sata to ide converter.

Cd is not reading by dvd writer but dvd is running smooth


1.when you write on dvd writer always select low speed to write such as 8x or 16x
2. most of the dvd writer do max speed while wrting the Cd or Dvd
3. due to this reason your cd is not reading
4. you can try a new disk write in slow speed,then check with your cd.

Sounds like the drive either doesn't like the disk you are trying to use or the cd laser has burnt out. Try the disk in another machine if you can, if it works ok then replace the drive.

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

LG GSA-4167B DVD Writer... PC restarts whenever any CD is inserted


What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case. You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.
