Question about Sony AW-Q170A-B2 DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Brand new Super Multi DVD Rewriter model GSA - H55N

My first few burns with this new writer have been movies which play in the 16:9 aspect ratio. The border that is normally black at top and bottom of your screen is displayed in a fluttering pinkish/purple color. The quality of the movie itself seems fine. Any idea what is causing this?

My lg super multi gsa-h55n dvd rewriter does not see the cd in it.

Bad cd, reinstall your burning soft, firmware update, jumper settings, loose cable, also you realize this drive needs to be a slave since it is a burner....

If only one hd and one cdrom (your dvdrw) use it as the primary slave rather than a secondary master.

HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N cannot detect dvd disc

I have same DVD writer and I am facing the same problem. During R&D for such failure on google I came to know there are two different Laser Diodes for CD and DVD. CD read write is working for me. I think DVD r-w laser has some problems. I am currently looking for options to get the new laser diode. As soon I replace the diode and see my DVD writer working. I will upload the video to replace the diode for you all.

Nero cannot burn DVD inserted in my LG GSA-H55N DVD-RAM rewriter

Have you tried other discs, or just that one? It might be that the disc you've inserted already has something written on it, and you can't burn a DVD-R twice. From the error message you're getting, that would be my guess.

Super multi dvd writer gsa-h55n

Well, since I received a solution from MAXTRIXKHAN, I just wanted to check back with, and here is a recap of what I did, and what they told me...

After a few tries, I had to contact LG Customer service.
I tried to burn to...

-Maxell CD-R, no problems,
-TDK DVD-RW, no problems,
-Verbatim DVD+R, Computer hangs.

Well, I bought this DVD-Writer to replace my old GSA-4167B, and LG customer service told me that this DVD-Writer does not support the Verbatim DVDs.

So, if you have plenty of Verbatim DVDs, you should forget about this writer.

Supported DVDs...
Maxell, Sony, TDK

Will have to send it back to NCIX

So beware
