The laser on your drive is probably beginning to go out of alignment.
A plastic grub screw holds the laser carriage at the correct angle on the slider rods. Over time, this screw will get worn down and the laser carriage will begin to lean too far over to one side. This grub screw will need to be tightened slightly to bring the carriage back to the correct angle. I suggest turning it a quarter of a turn (clockwise) and testing it. Repeat a few times until it works correctly.

Dirty Disk Problem with DVD+R Disks on SONY RDR-GX300?


I have used my Sony GX300 for a couple of years and love it. I prefer +R blanks. The only occasional problem is the media brand. It will not record Fuji 16X, but will record Fuji 4X, which are rare nowadays. I have used TDK 16X with success, but this week bought TDK "lightscribe" blanks, and the GX300 would not record with them.

Sony should provide an upgrade download for the GX300 but does not. On the internet I have been unable to find a list of suitable brands for this DVD recorder, so I have to take risks when shopping. Fortunately, all blanks can be used for my computer so my money is not really wasted.

It's October, 2009 and in Toronto there has been a shortage of DVD blanks for months. I've been told there will be lots available in December.

New DVD burner won't read blank DVD-r's.


Make sure your burner software supports your burner. Older software doesn't read and write the newer burners properly.

Super multi dvd writer gsa-h55n


Well, since I received a solution from MAXTRIXKHAN, I just wanted to check back with NCIX.com, 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

Mini DVD Camcorder Problem


You will never be able to recover the information. Sony's system really will have problems with third party brands; there is particular engineering that makes this so. In my shop (Sony authorized), I have seen this problem many times. If you insist on using other brands, get used to problems. As your laser assembly wears it will become more problematic. Good luck, magic seadog
