Re: DVD formats burned by LG GSA 4163B

I have the same drive and had serious problems with dual layer - you must check the write speed of the discs themselves - I had Ritek Extreme dual layer dvds and they dont burn on anything except an older HP dvd writer as they are listed 2.4x on the dvd itself so trying to write them at anything faster doesnt work and this dvd player wont write at such a low speed.

The truth is that the quality of dvd dual layer is even more important than ordinary dvds - in all honesty i cant wait until dvd cd etc are consigned to the bin as they cause so many problems its probably one of the most frustrating areas of problems you can have with pc hardware - even leaving a damaged or incompatilbe dvd in a drive can stop you pc booting or slow it down / crash or even stall windows explorer. I have never spent as much time diagnosing customer hardware faults than i have with dvd writers readers etc

Tdk Dual layer did write once i upgraded the firmware so give a firmware upgrade a go and see if it helps!

Yes... but you need to have a good ammount of RAM memory and Disk drive space to achieve that since dual layer disc are up to 8 gigs..

Do i need a new dvd rewriter every time i put in a disc it displays ''this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action''if it does accept the disc burning always fails LG...

Do you use any burner program? if not try to install one, if your dvd still read some dvds and others not, try to buy the dvd cleaner cd, could fix the problem, sounds like software issue.

Best Regards

Thanks for using Fixya

System requirements for using LG GSA 4163B to burn DL discs

512 should be enough. As long as you have enough hard drive space windows should take care of creating virtual memory with the swap file.

I see no reason at all why 512 wouldn't be enough ram to burn a disc. If you are running out of memory take a look at what programs are running on the system and try to close some of the larger ones.
