Ya I actually upgraded the firmware and its still the sameTriple6 said:Actually Firmware may be the answer. DVD compatibilty is a big problem. I have a LG 4040B and it will only write to Mitsumi 4X DVD's at 2X and had to update the firmware to use Memorex discs. The lesson is not all media works in all drives.
You can download the firmware from here: http://www.lge.com/support/software_gcsc.jsp
Somtimes it solves problems with media not listed as well as not all media can be tested. Or you can try different CD's.
