wtf is wrong with lg

Burn baby burn!

wtf is wrong with lg

Postby dark_ice on Wed Feb 26, 2003 6:58 am

i bought lg GCE-8480B recently, burned about 5cds on it, most on 32x because of that "feature" that lowers the writing speed (but the cds were 48x).
all the burned cds are COMPLETELY UNREADABLE on my LG DVD or my other waitec burner or in mp3 player. its nothing wrong with dvd coz i can normally read cds burned on waitec or other burners... ONLY the 8480b can read the cds. wtf is wrong, is there any way to fix this...

thanx

Please be patient. People do have normal lives outside of CDRLabs. Every one of us here either works or goes to school. Also, some people are from other countries, so there is a time zone difference too. If you still don't get a response by tomorrow, then I would be concerned.

What brand of blank CD's are you using, dark_ice? I recommend trying another brand. Look here for a list of discs that peform well (and no so well) in the LG GCE-8480B - http://www.cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=6005 . By the way, in the list, look for the GCE-8481B. If you try multiple brands of CD's and neither of them work well, you may want to consider upgrading the firmware at http://www.firmware-flash.com , you may be able to upgrade the drive to an 8481B, but I'm not certain.

thanx for reply. i'm using sony blanks, but i recorded one ePerformance too. but its weird that they are unreadable on other drives. my only chance now is to upgrade firmware and see what will happen then.

peace

try some more media.
try some good media - Verbatim DataLifePlus, Taiyo Yuden (Fuji).

try burning at a lower speed.

try reading the discs on another computer.

let us know what happens.
