HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA T50L ATA Device

Recommended Posts

I get a few errors here and there about, HO layer not correct, and or write faild at the beginning of the burn session if it manages to pass lead in.

I have verbatim dvd+R DL useing a notebook drive, HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA T50L ATA Device on windows vista home premium.

I had been able to burn 1 disc complete but it dosent read. i cant make sure the book type for my drive is set to DVD-ROM, none of the options will allow it. i dont even know if anything burns to the disc, accept when the program shows disc incomplete or complete when i insert it.

 

1. what im wondering is my drive compatible with this program?

2. is what seems to be stock firmware compatable and current?

3. is there a work around to make sure i can change the book type to dvd-rom DL?

 

i tryed nero, and roxio and they dont even see the drive. atleast imageburn shows the drive exists, other then windows explorer.

 

i dont know the manufacture of the drive, or the firmware, but the drive says it is DVD+RW DL dvd multi recorder with lightscribe. provided installed with hp notebook dv7-t 2000 CTO.

right click on the drive description box in ImgBurn and choose check for firmware updates and see if there is one

That's an LG burner, and ImgBurn automatically booktypes +R media on LG burners, provided that the burner supports it. Also, all newer burners booktype DVD+R DL media to DVD-ROM by themselves, so I don't think you need to worry about this. If you insert a burned disc the booktype is shown under "Physical Information (Last Recorded)".

 

Can you post a log of a failed burn? Look in ImgBurn's Help menu.

Well, i checked for firmware update, and i do have the latest version, sc05 according to the site it pulls up. which leads me to conclude there might be something wrong with the drive itself. so i sent for a replacement through HP. The logs indicate random faults that stop burining after around 1% to 5% saying sector write failure. using the drive, to burn reguler dvd-r discs also seemed to fail, and i also tryed burning a cd-r, which failed as well. i apreciate the help in checking with what the fourm suggested. thank you, but i think at this point i need a new drive.

OK...after you install the new drive, how about posting a log if you still have a problem :thumbup:
