If you are using some unbranded medias then this problem is common

but for good brands this should not be the case

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.

I have 2 lg DVD writers (i.e. GSA 4120B & GSA H10A).My Regions on both units (both on the same computer)are both set on '0'.Is it possible to make at least one of the units "REGION FREE" ?Thanks

for burning dvd try using a program SlySoft AnyDVD for veiwing try vlc media player. VLC is one of the free software and open source DVD players that ignores DVD region coding on RPC-1 firmware drives, making it a region free player. However, it does not do the same on RPC-2 firmware drives. If both are RPC-2 then you might have to try a program like DVD Region-Free 1.0

My disk drive doesn't detect burning media.

You MUST have software that is for burning a CD.

Some examples are "CD Creator", "Nero" and others.

These programs are OFTEN not included and MUST be purchased seperately.

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