Just a note about servicing your LG burner, they were good to me when I had to send them my broken GCE-8320B. I never had a problem writing discs, as you are having, I had a problem reading discs. One day, I heard a jarring sound inside the drive, and after that it wouldn't recognize any type of disc: CD-R, CD-RW, pressed CD, etc. So, I contacted LG Customer Service, they arranged to pick up my drive via UPS 2-Day (no cost to me) and sent me a replacement drive a couple months later. Yes, the turn-around time was a bit longer than usual (8+ weeks), but I'm still pleased with how LG handled the matter. They were responsive, friendly, and they made the exchange easy.
You can visit their web site at http://www.lgservice.com
or call their toll-free number 800-243-0000 between 8am and 6pm Central Time, Monday through Friday. In order to arrange a drive exchange, you'll need to call the 800 number.
No, I like women.
