I recently installed windows 7 and bought a new pack of Verbatim DL 8x.

Everytime I go to burn a dual layer dvd it says the disc isn't empty.

I have tried a good few discs and both imgBurn and my drives drivers are the most recent versions.

 

Heres what it says in the right hand side:

HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N 1.06 (ATA)

-> EL: 2228224 (0x00220000)
-> RS: 11,080 KB/s (8x) - WS: 3,324 KB/s (2.4x)

 

Also I attached the debug log.

 

Hope someone can help,

Thanks.

Hmm.. 2 things immediately grab my attention with this log. The first is this:

 

Size: 4,563,404,800 bytes

 

Your disc is being shown as a regular single-layer disc. The other thing is this:

 

Disc ID: ÿ¿úÿÿÿõ-ÿÿÿ-255

 

This is gobbledegook. Your drive doesn't seem to be recognizing the media correctly. As to the cause of it?

 

No idea. The drive might be stuffed (maybe) or the media is bad (unlikely). Your options are fairly limited as I was

unable to find a newer firmware for your drive.

 

Whatever the problem, I'm confident that it's not the software.
