I bought this burner about one week ago.I tried to burn Princo DVD -R 4x and DMG DVD +R 4x and It was successful but When I tried to read these burned DVDs, I met some read failure.
After investigated using Isobuster program realized that some sectors (especially around 1820000 sectors) could not to read.
I burned about 10 DVDs and on all of them has some problem.
Can it be firmware problem or what?

I just bought this burner, I don't like how burn different media's, I have VERBATIM +4x (bulk) and is burning at 2x, I tried VERBATIM -4x (retail) with great results...In my DVR106D all discs has been burner at 100% speed.
Anyway, DVD-RAM looks like a good media to store data !!

DVD playback no problems (for +R/+RW) on CYBERHOME CH-DVD 402, LOOMAX x-50, ELTA 8883, PHILIPS DVD737.

price: EURO 94

Burned Fuji DVD+R 4X at 4X and had great results. Both data and video without a hitch. CD's burned faster than I've ever burned before! (upgraded from a 8X sony CDRW drive).

Very happy. Great featureset and price tag too!

I still can't burn DVD
I tried with Easy Cd & DVD Creator 6 and all the time freezes at 10% or at 17% but never goes further than 25%.

Probably it's from the program!

Great drive, as were all of the previous LG GSA/GMA series (had them all except 4081).
After using it for almost 2 months I cxant say any bad word about. Tested with all kind of blanks (some - i.e. DataTech - write at 2x only) except for 8x DVD-R which I cannot find at any local store yet.
Minor 'problem' (not actually a problem, its just the way it is designed) is Zone CAV CD-R writing speed, instead of real CAV writing speed. Thats the only reason I give it 9 instead of 10.


Comments posted by DereX888 from Canada, May 02, 2004. Rated this writer 9 of 10.





Ok, pulled the LS-120 off the chain with the drive and it writes beautiful. So I'm giving it a nine. Can't really argue with the featureset combined with an affordable pricetag.


Comments posted by John Morris from United States, April 25, 2004. Rated this writer 9 of 10.





Can't really rate it yet because I haven't managed to get a DVD to burn. CD-R seems to do ok, but no DVDs yet. I'm running Linux, but my distribution includes dvdrecord and the dvd+rw tools package so I should be ok. But no, error after writing the first block and all I get is a coaster.

And no don't ask if I have tried it under Windows. A) I don't HAVE a copy of Windows new enough to put on this machine and B) I bought it as an OEM drive from newegg.com and it didn't include any bundled software and C) if it is some sort of WinWriter it goes back, period.

Burned 15 dvd backup's with Memorex 4x DVD-R and 0 problems at 4x, all of them work flawless even in my friend old Panasonic A100 dvd player. Play well in my XP30 and Sony DVPNS700P. Data backup work great too. Very recommanded, now where's the 8x disc? ;)
