I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4167B from LG. Its about 2 years old.
I'm running winXP sp2.
The last time I burned something to DVD using it was a few months
back, and it worked fine.
Now, it won't burn or read data that is on a dvd-r/dvd+r. It can read
and burn cd-r/rw as well as play dvd movies. When I try to copy a dvd
movie, it will copy the dvd files to my computer, but won't recognize
the blank dvd in order to burn.
I formatted my pc just yesterday (due to an unrelated problem), and
the dvd-ram still does not burn or read from dvd-r/+r, so I'm thinking
that its not a windows problem.
I've noticed that others have posted having a similar problem to this,
but what is the solution? Is it time for a new dvd-ram, or can this
one still be saved somehow?
I'd be happy to hear any ideas and suggestions.
