I have an issue i never ran into before.
I have a brand new CD/DVD burner that will burn CDs but not DVDs.
It is a LG GSA-4160B (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4160B in windows).
Now i already updated the firmware to the latest version (406a) to no prevail.
And the strangest thing is if you have a blank DVD in the drive it hoses up the computer!
If i click on Nero (came with drive) it starts to open then freezes...can't even end task until i take out the blank.
This drive is installed on a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise machine w/P4 2.4GHz Processor and a Gig of RAM. If you leave a blank DVD in the drive and reboot...the server won't even POST.
The media i had to use is a brand new Imation DVD-RW.
Now i tried a Imation CD-R and the computer and Nero backup ran perfect. The problem is the folders i have to backup is 3.45Gig so i would much like the DVDs to work :).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
