LG DVD-RAM sticking during burn process

  1. Hello all.

    I hope someone may be able to shed some light on this problem as I have been unable to figure it out, unless the drive is defective of course. I just got the drive and have been unable to get it to complete any discs. I'm using verbatim DVD+R media and made all coasters so far. I wanted to see if I could troubleshoot it before deciding to send it back to newegg for a replacement to see if it's just a dud. The first burn failed, and since then it won't get above 8% before just sticking there. I've used nero smartstart 8.2.3.0, alcohol 1.9.7, nero cd,dvd speed 4.7.7.15 and tried lowering the burn speed with no success.

    Here is the log dump from alcohol:

    Doesn't really say much, as far as I can see, but maybe someone else can spot something. It will read discs fine by the way. I've tried different images with the same result. The drive will keep spinning until I'm forced to do a hard reset. I'm really tempted to just rma it with newegg for a new one. The two pictures attached are from Nero cd.dvd speed where it hung and the disc info.
