Hi guys,i have a problem.

 

I own a LG GSA-2164D,and i want to burn an xbox360 backup on a verbatim DVD+R Double Layer (i have the original copy ;) ).the problem is that when i insert the dvd,imgburn says for a few seconds "in progress of becoming ready",and than says "'medium not present".I've seen another simlar 3d in this forum but nothing worked for me.

I've successfully burned cds and dvds with this external ,but it won't read double layers!!!!!!

 

Thanks for helping me :D

sh**t,this drive has done at maximum 10 burnings >.<,i read dvd+r dl on the dvrive so i thought that it was able to burn.The problem is that in my town i only found this 8x....

So you think that's an hardware problem and not a software problem?

This will work only with a setup like this or i can make sth else?

 

Newest burner ---> also 8x

My burner ----> only 2.4x

There is no guarantee about any burning! Its just about taking the risk and reading about other peoples experiences. I have verbatims but since i updated to 2.5.0 ive only had coasters. Then I downgraded back to 2.4.0 and never had a problem since!

 

Maybe it was my batch of dvds i got that had defects or maybe the software i have no idea. Its like every person has a diffrent personality. Just like your drive + computer. The moral of the story is its just about taking the risk.

 

If i was you, id go and buy a better cd drive. Lg drives mess up too often. I have a samsung

Downgrading did not fix your issue as there is no issue with 2.5.0.0 and burning xbox 360 images to disc .. Messing with settings stopped yours working like having USER specified layerbreak option ticked instead of calculate optimal which it would then get from a .DVD file ..unless someone sabotaged the .DVD by inserting a totally random (other than the proper 1913760) LB position for 360 backups
