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

What is the minimum amount of RAM required to burn dual layer discs with an LG GSA 4163B. What if I have 512MB of RAM? Can I create virtual RAM memory on my hard drive if 512MB of RAM is insufficient for this purpose?

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.

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.

Thanks for using Fixya

I have the same issue with the LG GSA-H20L and the LG GSA-42N, but mine was with TDK DVDs.

I contacted LG Support and they told me that TDK disks are not recommended for use with their DVD Burners.

I asked them if there were any others they did not reccomend and they said no.

Going through my cupboard, I found Memorex Printable DVD-Rs that will burn OK.

I also tried Sony DVD+R and a generic brand, but they will not burn either.

I also found that these LG drives do not recognise Laser CD-R.

In short, for burning, try either Memorex, LG and some others, but don't try TDK, Sony or Laser.

Good Luck
