20 Most Recent Sony DW-G120A DVD RW Dual Layer Burner Questions & Answers


How can i burn files

CDBurnerXP is a good, free disc burning program that can do what you need. Rather than try to duplicate the information here, I'll just say that help is here on their website that explains how to use the program. It's quite simple, though. You just drag-and-drop the files you want to burn to the program's layout window, and when you're done adding files you click the "burn" button.

Yes hello the problem is

Hello Ove,

    • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform

    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot

Windows should reinstall the drive when the computer boots back up.

If this does not resolve your problem, try the following.

If you take all these step and you still can not burn a DVD -R, chances are your DVD burner needs to be replaced. Good Luck.

  • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution

It just won´t open, i

I would turn the computer off the try a paper clip. You may need to "feel" up or down to find the ejector too (or press a bit further). Or, lift up gently on the drive door when you try to open it.

I want to copy over 2 hours, with a 120 minute

You can, you just need a program that will lower the quality.
Do you have any video editing software or DVD authoring software?

I would recommend MovieFactory 6 Plus or VideoStudio X2 Pro from Corel.com
You can download free trials from Corel.com, but I don't think they sell X2 Pro anymore they are now up to X3 and I am not sure how well it works.

Refuses to burn dual layer disks. Have tried

Find, download, and install the latest "firmware" for the Sony DVD-writer -- if the unit does not recognize the special "tags" written onto the 1st record of each "blank" dual-layer disk, you need the latest firmware.

Burns very slowly and plays back slowly and with interference

Could be a couple of things. 1 the software that works the drive could be playing up, but 2 more likely that the drive itself is on its last legs.
These bare drives are now so cheap that I would just replace it and see what happens when you put the new on in.
You don't have to replace like for like, juts choose one you fancy.

Will Not reconise Cd or DVD in the Drive

Yes, this drive is basically dead. You can find pretty cheap prices for new drives at www.pricewatch.com
If the drive door closes on a cd or dvd that you want and it will not open back up, use a straightened paperclip and push it into the little hole near the door on the drive, the door will pop open then.

Go to yahoo and do a search for a firmware update putting in the model number of your recorder or visit manufacturer's website see if they have any firmware update available.

Can not copy large dual layer data file written with NERO 6

According to other sources (in Afterdawn) the problem lies with the media. Memorex
(Ritek) have apparently dumped a lot of cheap quality media into the market which
do not have a smooth layer transfer. Apart from that, I also noticed several badly
recorded discs (compared to some Mitsubishi discs I had earlier). Apparently these
are meant for the cheap Asian copy market (Ritek statement - search Internet
reviews). I now have to save up enough in order to buy those expensive Verbatim
discs (or use DVDShrink).

Personally, I feel that the disc manufacturers should get together with companies
like Nero and manufacturers of burners to solve such problems before dumping it onto
the consumers. This is irresponsible marketing (very common today).

Sony DW-G120A DVD RW works very slowly with my new computer

I had a similar problem and fixed it by buying a £10 external USB enclosure, ripping the drive out of the computer and putting it into the enclosure.
