Unable to burn using a LG GSA H58N DVD burner

I have tried several burning softwares and upgraded the firmware of the unit but I am still not able to burn any DVDs.
I either gets something burned and then it hangs or it does not burn anything at all.

I suspect that Windows XP does not recognise that it is a DVD burner but I have not found any driver for it.

With the built in drivers for windows XP it can identify and use DVD-RW facilities of DVD burner. However depending on your bios your machine can fail to burn DVDs if your bios can not recognise that output.

While loading the CD that comes with the DVD-RW did you get an error message if yes then it means you BIOS is failing to recognise your DVD-RW as an output method try to update the BIOS. But before you do that if you can try adding the drive on a modern (after 2002) machine with xp and see if it can burn DVDs there without adding any drivers.

if it fails on that other machine then you can be sure its not your BIOS but a problem with drive (which I suspect most actually). But if it works then then you need to update your machine bios.

I have always been using Nero burn software with my LG GSA-2166D DVD RW. Now I bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10. No any writing process has been successful. I have since yesterday spoiled 10 DVD's....


speed of source data is too slow = the hard disk cannot deliver the data fast enough and the burning process stops; this is a sign of a severely fragmented file system and very charged background processes: defragment your hard disk, stop using other programs when burning a disk and use 8X as a recording speed.
 Track Following Error = the laser head in the burner is no longer capable of following the track it has itself burned - the lens is dirty, clean it.

I have 2 lg DVD writers (i.e. GSA 4120B & GSA H10A).My Regions on both units (both on the same computer)are both set on '0'.Is it possible to make at least one of the units "REGION FREE" ?Thanks


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

DVD writing problem -'HW error, Timeout on logical unit'


What software are you using to burn and what type of dvd are you trying to burn.(+), (-), or (RW). Do you have a copy of NERO? http://www.filehippo.com has NERO (I think) try a different then try a different disk. Some where it even said to try defragging the hard drive...It wouldn't hurt. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
