Problem with Burner

Postby carex on Sun Dec 10, 2006 12:06 am

Hi Guys

I have the LG. HL-DT-ST DVDRW GWA 4164B, and I'm wondering if a firmware update will solve the problem i have :?:

When I burn a movie etc.. they always seem to have area that "freezes,
I've tried burning at the slowest speed possible, but know joy :(

The movie image on the hard disc plays OK, so it sounds like it's the burner, do you agree :?: and will a firmware update fix it.

Thank in advance.

Thanks for reply.

I've tried various Ritek etc..

Burning with
DVD shrink / nero.
I've also tried burning the the movie image ( which does not freeze and is perfect) from the hard drive using Clone DVD.

Things were fine till a few months ago, no probs, I can't figure it out :?

So a firmware update is a no no then :?:

check to ensure your drive is in DMA mode in device manager, also ritek media is not the most reliable, . To advise on firmware, please post what you have now, the only thing the firmware can do is better match media
