A big thanks Paul Chan ! This MediaCodeSpeedEdit works great and save me time and money. Thanks again.

Thanks to the prior comments from Paul Chan. With the information he gave, I was able to utilize MediaCodeSpeedEdit along with DVD Identifier to update my firmware so that I burn at 4X with the faster blank media that is out these days. Literally took me 10 minutes to update and then flash it.

Great burner....had it for 2 or 3 years and will probably keep using it until it dies.

This DVD Writer is now discontinued when I requested a firmware updated by e-mail to the LG web site.

MediaCodeSpeedEdit is a Firmware Editor and used along with DVD Identifier that reads the media code of the the DVD's.
I have successfully replaced some of the media codes to use Verbatim 16x, Memorex 16x as well as Maxell 8x DVD-R Media's to burn at 4x.

I believe you can make any DVD media work out thier in the market to work with the LG GSA-4040B super multi writer.

Enjoy using the DVD burner until it dies.

Had problem with Verbatim 16X MCC 03RG20 with this drive. Only see them as 2x. Other then that drive has been great. using 304A firmware. Is there any new firmware out there?


Comments posted by Doogie from United States, November 16, 2005. Rated this writer 8 of 10.





reading some the comments since my last post
I burn 4X media on this burner @4X, and my experiences with 8X media has been an average burn rate of 5X (pretty damned amazing for a 4X burner!!!)
I will admit that it is starting to slow down a bit, after unknown hundreds of successful burns.
average burn speed on 4X media is now down to about 3.8X, with 8X media "only" burning at 4.5X.
isn't that a horrible shame?

As a larger scale user and company tech, this drive never fails to amaze me. The original one I purchased(Nov 03) in an extremely high usage machine is still functional and is known to be the dependable burner around the office. This burner has burned over 1000 (minimum)DVD-R's (Sony,Maxell) with an extremely small ratio of coasters and most of those were user related. Unfortunately, most of our machines came with BENQ drives (HP factory installed) which were immediate throw aways .If they worked at all it was only for a few disks. I only hope LG has maintained the same quality since this drives apparent success.

I bought 8x media but only write in 2x in this burner.

Where I can write 8x dvd media in 4x?? Is there a hacked firmware that solve this?? I use the latest original firmware A304.

When I first purchased my LG 4040B just over a year ago "I have to admit" I had few problems burning. I put this down to being a novice and media compatability issues with the firmware at that time. But one year on and armed with the latest firmware (A304,) this burner fails to disappoint me. This is truly a great burner.

Has worked great for about 1.5 years, it had some trouble with 4x discs until i updated to A303

the burn protection is awesome, it has saved my ass many times.

(ps. i only burn dvd-r's. so my comments only apply to those)

Im thinking of selling it while i can still get some cash for it and buying a faster one.

I have had this drive for quite some time now and have for the most part had nothing but positive experiences.

The first thing I have to say is this: Keep in mind that when you install this drive AND when you flash/update the firmware, you MUST have it installed as the master device on the 2ndary IDE bus. MUST!!
If you wish to have another device installed on that bus, simply install it afterward.
Don't forget to disconnect your other device when you flash the firmware!!

After many failed attempts to get the DVD-RAM features of this device to work, I simply gave up (i realized that i really had no use for the DVD-RAM features anyway!), so i can't comment on those features.
I have burned literally hundreds of DVD's with this burner - DVD back-ups, DVD data discs, DVD's that i've authored from downloaded video files as well as files i've captured myself. I've fixed the problems i posted about earlier regarding CD's too.
All in all, i'd say i've burned about 6 coasters with this drive, and all of them were because i didn't know what the hell i was doing (playing around with new software, experimenting/trying something new with software i was familiar with).

I was just about to update the firmware to 303 when i saw herny's post about 304.
Now i'm confused.........
LG says the 304 version is for "only GSA-4040_A"
has anybody here successufully used version 304 on their 4040B??

because i'll never give anything a '10', i give this drive a 9.8 out of 10

Before upgrading the firmware, the PLATINUM DVD+R 8X could burned with 4x, but the player Thomson DTH-5200 couldn't read them: "No disk". After upgrade to A303 I burned with 4x, the player could play them fine. But now I cannot burn these DVDs with 2.4x.

I bought LG 4040 for less than US$100 (after the company rebate). I am very happy with it. So far I was only using 2 brands - DVD-R (Mitsumi) and Memorex DVD+R, both say on the package it is 4X, however, for Mitsumi I was offered x1 writing speed by DVD Architect. It took 28 min to burn 4.5G of data. So it is, obviously, not x1, it is closer to x2.4.
I was using DVD+R as data disks only. For some DVDs I save the video-audio assets for possible future use, that's why I burn them as data. I use Roxio easy CD creator for that. As in the case of DVD-R, 4.5G was burned in 28 min.
I am very happy with my purchase, not a single coaster so far! If I make one DVD per wk on average, I can manage with x1. But, as I mentioned already, it seems to be burning at 2.4.
I have not tried to burn any CDs with it, I burn those on a CD writer, which I have on the same computer.
I am tempted to give this burner a perfect 10, but that would mean an absolute perfection, which only exists in nature. That is the only reason I give it a 9.
If you are happy with this speed, look no further.
The only problem I am having with it, is that Sonic ReelDVD does not recognize my LG4040. So far my way around this problem was to use DVD Architect to burn a DVD from the disc image file and the DVD video files prepared by ReelDVD.
But that is probably the driver problem. As soon as I get some free time, I'll try to sort it out.

I don't know about others, but this drive has helped convince me that DVD-R is viable!

Tested one DVD "backup" using DVD Shrink 3.1 and Nero 6.3, worked beautifully. Rented dozens more, backed them all up with no problems.

The only downside to this DVD writer is that, when I bought it, it was slow (4x +-R), but hey...$90 CDN can't be beat!


Comments posted by Jules from Canada, April 30, 2004. Rated this writer 9 of 10.





OK. I have burnt and formatted DVD-RAM withouth problems, Written CD-R/ISO with no problems, and watched many DVD's and VCD's on this burner. I also wrote a DVD+R data CD fine, and used Nero's verification option after finished burning. Things were still going great.

I ejected the CD, and and reloaded. But I am not able to read drive. Whe nthere is no DVD of any sort in the drive, it is labelled as xxx, but when the DVD+R that I burnt is in the drive, it shows up as "CD Drive". The error message I get when trying to view the contents of this CD is..."E:\ is not accesable. Incorrect function."

I can clearly see that this ("DVD+R 4X Ritek Arita") disc has been fully written with something, but other than that, I am at complete dismay.

Any help would be great. // :)

Bought it in Dec 11, 2003 and 2 days ago burning gave me Tracking Servo Failure (5 coasters) and yesterday it finally had it....couldn't play DVD movies nor see any DVD blank, music cd is ok tho. Called LG Canada service and they were fast sending me a exchange request form by fax, have choice to either recieve replacement unit first (require credit card number) or request for return authourization number, in any case they are not going to fix it but send me another one instead. Knew someone who had the same problem and his replacement was a 4081 so hopefully I'll get the same treatment.

Anyway, this 4040 doesn't looks like it'll last very long, hopefully the 4081 is better built.

I bought it on december 2003. Until now, everything was working smooth, but now it isn`t finishing to record with Nero or CloneDVD2, the message is: "Focus or tracking error" I don't know what it really means, but I'm tired of that so I'm gonna change it.

Follow up on cheap media, found local stores which sell Silver top Longten 4X DVD-R and Silver top ONIDTECH 4X DVD-R for C$50 & C$45 for spindle of 50 tax included, the Longten burn at 4X without problem but he ONIDTECH only at 2X without problem with either A302 or A303 firmware.

And according to Nero CD/DVD speed test both media is better than Princo and on par with Memorex CMC, so I am staying with these cheap media, I must say the LG 4040 now rocks.
