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

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R DL discs not burning in Nero 6

Are you sure that you are putting in a blank disc? What happens when you put the disc inside the DVD writer? does it show up as a blank disc? This could be one of the reason for the multi session disc box getting greyed out.

I have an LG writer in my computer which is capable of burning DL (double layer) disks & I use Nero 6 which works okay with normal DVD's but I cannot burn my DL disks which are Moser Bayer 8.5GB disks....

If a software don't give the options to choose between regular disc and 8.5 ( which is the one that is used for the originals movies) then you need another program. DVDFab does give that option. Search for DVD clone. But Nero should have the copy disc option, which you don't have to convert or anything like that, it should work.

Nero burn CD with different speeds.

Your burner can only achieve high speeds towards the end of the burning progress as the data burned reaches the outer areas of the disc. Burning starts at the center of the disc - the more the laser moves towards the outer end, the faster the burning speed gets. I have a 20x burner and 18x discs, and every burn starts at about 6-7x and then gets progressively faster, until the last 20secs of the burn it actually burns at 18x.
