Question about LG External DVD Burner USB 2.0 GSA-4120B SuperMulti Dual Layer DVD±R + CD-RW Burner w/ Heavy Duty Al... (D4120FK51UBKA25DVDR4X) Burner

1 Answer

I just bought a USB External/GE24 Super Multi Rewriter, with 24x speed. my problem is, when it burns, it burns EXTREMELY slow. I used to have an 8x burner, that would burn in about 5 minutes, and this one had taken 2 hours, and only had burned 14 percent. Any ideas???

Hello mklvon,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
I would like to recommend that you first take a look at your computer. Check if you have a USB 2.0 High Speed port. Reason is because although you have a USB 2.0 Ext Multi-Burner but your connecting it to a USB 1.0 or USB 1.1 port, the Multi-Burner will only run as fast as the USB port can transfer data.
Another time I would like to recommend is for you to take a look at the USB cable itself. As it is an Ext. Multi-Burner it may require a power USB port w/c is the reason why most Ext. Burner's have a Y-connector that is one USB port on one side and the other side branches off to 2 USB ports as it required extra power. If it is, you may want to consider your options as to getting a powered USB port.
And lastly, I would recommend that you take a look at the type of discs you are burning on to. Not all DVD R are the same. Whilst some have 24x speed some can have 4x speeds which can also affect the burn speeds.
Regards,
Deathschythe33

How can i get the specs for hl-dt-st dvdram gt20n


It's an ATA device. (ATA / IDE)

At MAXIMUM:

A) It can play back DVD's at 8X speed,
B) Read CD's at 24X speed,

AND Write,


1) CD-R's at 24X speed.
2) CD-R/W's at 4X speed.
3) US CD-R/W at 24X speed.
4) High Speed CD-R/W at 10X speed.
5) DVD-R at 8X speed.
6) DVD-R/W at 6X speed.
7) DVD-R+ at 8X speed.
8) DVD-R Double Layer at 6X speed.
9) DVD-R/W+ at 8X speed.

The optical drive in a Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 Notebook PC, is a DVD Super-Multi drive, that is capable of using disks that are Double Layer, and R- or R+

In all actuality about what is the best burning speed, it is the Slowest speed that you can choose.

That is usually 4X.
However I would recommend 8X in all situations.
Makes a better burn, and is easily readable by other optical drives.

Makes it simple, huh?

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Vista and Windows 7 automatically find the drivers by the way. Just get to the Device Manager, locate it in the list under optical devices and right click on it and choose update driver.

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

I have had a similar problem with this drive and windows 7. The device was not receiving enough power to operate. I found 2 solutions:
1) If connecting through a usb extension, plug in both USB connecters on the DVD's power cable.
2) Try plugging directly into the PC"s USB ports. Remember to always use the USB on the power cord that has the 2 wires connecting to it.

If this does not work, the drivers may have become corrupted. If so, let me know and I will walk you through it
