Odd happenings when burning a DVD+R DL disk on my GSA-120B

Postby Boba_Fett on Sat Dec 04, 2004 11:59 pm

Well, I've put around 1,000 pieces of regular DVD-5 recordable media in my LG GSA-120B without a problem (worth mentioning anyway). Today I decided to use this Ritek DVD+R DL that I aquired somehow for free. Well, I dumped this por...er, um movie onto my HDD and pointed Nero 6 to the movie files. Went through the 40+ minutes to burn almost 8gb of data and at the very end, Nero says there was a "Track/Focus error" or something to that effect. "WTF!" I thought. I was really freakin pissed at the prospect of a $10 coaster. Well, even though the disk wasn't properly closed, all my DVD players still read it perfectly (up until the very end). I was just wondering if this was the media's fault (Ritek is turning into ass lately from what I can see), or if my burner is dieing (I burnt about 5 DVD-5s after that and they came out just like usual). :cry:

Ritek dual layer disc's are just crap. Try Mitubishi Technology manufacturerd dual layer disc's these should work fine.

I could never get my 4120b to burn a proper DL with Verbatim no matter what the bitset was or firmware....all other functions ok.

If you want to burn SUPERB DL, get a Benq 1620...best out there right now for DL and cheap as the "pro" 1620 coming out.

get one

I might actually do that. The main reason I got the 4120B is for the DVD-RAM support...
