Review: LG GSA-H42N Reviewed by:MegaDETH Provided by:LG - USA Firmware: RL00 and RL02 Manufactured: December 2006
The LG GSA-H42N internal IDE drive. LG's newest DVD burner incorporates DVD-RAM recording, creating a true DVD Multi drive. Single layer 4.7GB DVD burning is supported at 18X max. Double Layer and Dual Layer Recording speed is 10X max. DVD Rewriteable speeds are 8X max for DVD+RW and 6X max for DVD-RW respectively. DVD-RAM recording is supported at 12X max. Very fast 48X max CD-R burning and 32X max CD-RW.
Hope this answers your question.
Have a great day!
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.
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
well you really don't need drivers for xp+ systems. it should automatically be recognized. you just have to get cd/dvd burning software like Nero. according to this site that drive won't be recognized by vista with out a firmware update http://www.cdfreaks.com/review/13311-LG-GSA-H42N-Super-Multi-DVD-Writer-Review/
drivers are not needed in order to cd to work, but this problem has aleazrdy been registered.
you shoul click on START, RUN, and type "regedit"
then search in the tree the branch
in this, remove the Upperfilters & Lowerfilters values.
reboot, it should work
if really not working after that, download and install the firmware update you can download at
here's how, you have to oppen that computer, take that cd drive out, dismantle it, and personally clean the lens, duat must have collected on the lens for the long years of not usin it, if you are currently online we'll do the dismantling and cleaning together, contact me e-mail: email@example.com
