LG DVDR-W Wont Burn! Windows XP

  1. I have recently built a new system:

    AMD 64 939 3000
    1GB Corsair XMS DDR
    Radeon X800GT 128MB
    Maxtor 120GB IDE HDD
    LG GSA4167B DVD-RW
    Windows XP Pro

    Before building this system i installed the dvd drive into my old pc and it worked fine using Roxio Easy CD and DVD Creator 6.

    However in my new system i cannot get the drive to write any DVDs. I have tried Nero 7 which everything goes fine until writing the disk and it comes up with an error. The same Roxio software also has an error when going to write the DVD and has to close.

    From what i can gather the nero error i have found in the log is:

    [14:31:44] <---MT---> 14:31:37 #25 CDR -1064 File Writer.cpp, Line 302
    [14:31:44] <---MT---> Invalid block address
    [14:31:44] <---MT---> E: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4167B

    I have installed the latest firmware and the correct ASPI.

    Please help!

    Next time get a pioneer or plexy they are much better burners.

    Maybe the problem could be the media i am using:

    Datawrite Yellow 8x DVD-R

    is it any good?

    After borrowing a RiDisc DVD-R off a friend it burned fine so it must be this drive is fussy with the media or the media is rubbish.

    Hope this helps some people out!
