LG GSA-E60L "Failed to Write to sector"

Recommended Posts

I just got an LG GSA-E60L off of ebay as used but working. Whenever I try to burn to it, with 2 different discs, it fails with a sector write error. This has happened with 2 different computers, both using ImgBurn. The first disc was a TDK DVD-R, and the second is a brand new sealed Verbatim DVD+R disc. Both failed towards the end of the burn.

That's the log for it. I'm not sure what's going on, could it be the drive? Or is it software related? (fingers crossed it's software related, this is my only drive). Any help?

EDIT: So I tried the built in burner with windows, and that worked just fine! Even verified it with ImgBurn, and it gave the all ok. I did change USB cables, so it may of been a bad cable. I'll see if ImgBurn can burn now. Fingers crossed.

It is known that CMC changed the manufacturing process for the DVD+R you described from Verbatim, the MCC-003-00 to the point where it is unusable in the LG WH16NS60 BD burner.

 

That doesn't explain the TDK failure, though.  Can you post a log of a TDK failed burn?  You can open the Log file under Help.

 

In the meantime, though it probably won't help, try checking for a firmware update to the drive.  In Write mode, right click on the drive letter and choose the last option near the end of the context menu to check for firmware update.

 

Until I see the TDK log, I know that Taiyo Yuden's DVD-R works in LG's WH16NS60.  You could try some of those and see if that helps.

 

I, however, would be more inclined to blame the drive.  Either on its age or the fact that it's an LG.

Hey! I don't have the TDK logs, I know they work fine, because they've always worked fine. I just did try another USB cable and that may have solved the problem, but i'm not sure, i'm going to try it again with ImgBurn instead of the default windows burner. I can certainly say that the drive is spinning faster with the new cable

Depending on the nature of those TDK's, they could be working by luck of the draw, depending on who made them.  Plus, if you've never used them before in this LG drive you got, there could be a conflict with them like there is with those Verbatim DVD+R's and LG's WH16NS60.

I'm not sure, they were just the only ones I had, and they were on a random spindle with some Sony CD-Rs so they might be good, might not. I'm not sure, I've used them all. These Verbatims are lightscribe ones, and they're apparently from 2005. Aaaand I think the drive is acting up, once it starts getting slow, it sounds like the disc is hitting something rapidly. I literally got the drive a few days ago, would suck if it was broken. Also sometimes it likes to sound like a floppy drive when I put a disc in.
