Lg gsa h55n burning problem

My unit burns only upto 5 or 6 percent. i have waste so many CDRs already. the nero is not the culprit because even on windows media player it does the same. i think, its better to burn this dvd writer and get a much better brand.

    thanx basit147, you are right. the only solution is to check first if there is a virus on your system. period. this virus may not bother much on your daily tread but somehow it interferes or worst, it interrupts the burning process.

    how i did it
    frustrated with none working solutions, what i did was to try the last resort (quite unusual), to scan your system for virus. last resort because i relied so much on my installed anti-virus, thinking it is doing its job. no, it doesnt. i tried to switch my anti-virus off and run a trojan remover. this remover did the job. it has removed quite a number of viruses.

    after running this remover, i tried burning and was always successful 100%. i now made it a point before burning, to search and delete viruses first before burning.

    another solution though is to change the brand of the disc you are using. but in my case, the ones i used is quite okay.

    if all elses fail, then, that is the time to burn the burner and look for a better brand.

I actually modified udma in bios from 4 to 6. it is still only 4 the maximum the drie supports, but the bandwidth that the chipset reserve for the dvdrw feeds it better. gsa-h54n does not support any of my ricohjpn w11 media (dvd+rw) although the code is in the firmware accepted media.

My dvd worked , but the recorder is not working....LG H55N

Set your properties to a slower speed for the drive, also try to avoid NERO and programs which add some loss of CPU during the burn, or yet, let the burn happen and not be present on the pc which you are burning from, loss of CACHE and loss of RAM could be the issue. Make sure your PC is scanned for viruses, and spamware which could cause loss of RAM, go into your properties for the burn program and set the speed from BEST to the current speed listed on the drive. Look at the TOP of the drive(if you have access) look for the speed like 8x, 10x, 24x, and set your burn speed from FAST or BEST to the speed listed -1x or -2x. If your drive says 24x, burn at 20x, if your drive says 8x, burn at 6x, this helps the motor, laser, your pc, operate and burn at optimum properties without worry of a crash n burn and having coaster DVD's all over the house...

Good luck!

My LG DVD Writer is reading but not writing. plz Solve it.

Please do check on recorder setting. If set to burn on image or virtual device. If your using nero tick on Recorder menu then Choose recorder then set the burner device. Don't choose image or virtual device.

Hope this helps you.

Nero cannot burn DVD inserted in my LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM rewriter

Have you tried other discs, or just that one? It might be that the disc you've inserted already has something written on it, and you can't burn a DVD-R twice. From the error message you're getting, that would be my guess.

To solve this problem you need a third party burning software. Windows XP does not include the ability to properly recognize DVD's when you drag and drop and sees it as CDRW. When you bought your DVD, there may have been a disk with a version of Nero on it. It works well but there are also other third party software apps that will do as well. Even some free ones. Hope this helps.

Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.

Super multi dvd writer gsa-h55n

Well, since I received a solution from MAXTRIXKHAN, I just wanted to check back with, 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
