LG DVD+/-RW 4082B burner problems
Posted on 2004-09-10
My LG DVD+/-RW 4082B burner is recognized by WIN98/SE but neither Nero (V188.8.131.52) nor Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator (V6) recognizes the drive.
Here is what I have:
Win 98/SE (4.10.2222 A), 256RAM, 80GB HDD (Drive C:)
Other drives are
D: Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-M1712
E: ATAPI CD-RW CW4801
F: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4082B (Firmware revision A201) - External drive
The drivers shown by the SYSTEM Device Manager are all MS 4-23-1999
The LG has a newer version of the firmware, A207, but when I try to run the upgrade using LG's program GSA4082A207.EXE it can't recognize drive F.
The F: drive is an ME-320 Series External Enclosure (Hi-speed USB 2.0). This drive seems to be OK for reading previously recorded data CDs (backup files, etc.)
I have either Nero or Roxio on the system bot never the two together.
I have tried to view a DVD movie (tried both the D and the F drives) but it's not clear to me what software would work.
Roxio has a DVD Builder facility and I would like to make a DVD presentation of family photos so that they can be viewed on a TV set but when it comes to the BURN stage, Roxio can't see the F: (DVD RW drive). The medium I use is Fujifilm DVD-R (4.7 GB) apparently suitable for both data and video applications.
What would I have to do/buy in order to burn a DVD?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
