Hi all,

I have an LG burner (model WH14NS40) they can use -r , +r, and double layer disks as well as the newer M-disk

it was working fine under XP, then I built a new system, i3 processor plenty of ram, (24 gig)

 

Now the burner keeps making coasters, though it does still reaqd disks just fine.

 

softwear used was at the time was Cyberlink, (the version that came with the LG burner driver, cyberlink v7 i think it is)

theen i upgraded the cyberlink to latest version, thats when the trouble began, put a single layer BR into it,

try to burn some files and it tells me ther isnt enough soace on the disk, now im no maths major but something like 14 gig is less that 25 gig

 

on other occasions it starts to burn and then spits out the disk saying it is a damaged or incompatable disk,

1 or 2 bad disks i could live with, bur about 1/3 of a 50 disk pack is a real pain. (Verbatim brand).

have also tried it with Nero 2015, same results.

 

and as if that wasnt bad enough, selectin the drive and disk in Cyberlink, when i select 25 gig,

it wants to burn an image, not the files as they are (and would have done under XP

im thinking there is som incompatabiliyt with windoes 10, little suprise there.

 

thanks for any help

I would try Imgburn which can burn images and files. You can opt out of any programs it offers or simply strip out the exe file from the compressed install exe file using winrar or 7 zip.

If it makes a coaster then check the cable connections to the drive or use another serial port if available. 

 

Have you tried Windows 10 native burning?

Thanks for the input John,

crazy thing is, my system will burn an image, and extract it to a drive / folder as desired,

but not burn as a bleeping file.

 

will download Imgburn later and see how that works out, is it a freebie?

havent tried windows native burning yet.

 

thanks

stew

Yes, Imgburn is free. When you use the exe installing your Antivirus may flag it as it using Open Candy to offer promos during the install but you can opt out of any offered or you can extract the exe file as I posted. After extracting the exe file simply double click to start the program. 

 

Looking at the Imgburn guides you can see how much this program can do.

 

Another burning program you can look at is another freebie called BurnAware. I had success with it after having failed burns with Ashampoo Burning Studio. Only 8MB.

Ta John, just dowmloaded imgburn now,

ver 2.5.8 (the latest for a guess) at 3.3 MB

 

from what they have in their page, it looks like it does the same

or maybe better than the pay for software

 

will let you know hor i get on with it

thanks

stew

 

 

 

Edit......

got imgburn installed, and now burning a mix of text files, image files (jpg & psd) and one video clip

burning at 2x, always prefer to burn at slow speed, less chance of error.

for a freebie it sure has a lot of settings users can set to preferance, wish i had known this 2 days back, would have saved a few disks,

know anyone who wants a few coasters ?  :)

From the description of your problem and using multiple programs failed to do a successful burn, I would hazard a guess it's hardware related. If this is a desktop, can you replace your SATA data cable to the DVD burner and use a different SATA port? But what is strange is the fact you can burn images successfully. 

 

With DVD burners being fairly cheap I would try a replacement or perhaps you know someone who would let you temporarily borrow their burner. 

 

Have you tried burning a CD vs DVD? Burners have two lasers, one for CD burning and the other for DVD burning. It's possible the DVD laser is going south.

 

Edit: Did you burn a DVD using Windows 10 native burning?

Now things are real strange, burnt a disk of multiple FLAC files (folders within folders)

and your not gonna believe this, burn was sucsessful!, real strange.
