    write/burn speed problem

    Hi, i have 2 dvd-rom LG GSA-H50N
    but i'm not able to write under 4x.

    I updated the firmware to 1.02 and update jmicron driver.
    spec of my dvd allow burn 1x to 18x

    I wrote to support of LG and they said contact the company of the application.

    So i see in img burner on any DVD ( i have verbatim dvd+r DL ( 2.4x )
    and maxell dvd-r (1x to 16x)

    and minimum writting speed is 4x.
    if i select 1x, it burn in 4x.

    I would like to know how to fix it.
    My dvd-rom is in DMA mod and UDMA 4 mod.
    does it better to put it in PIO ?

    and how ti fix my problem. i need to burn in 1x or (2.4x minimum speed of my verbatim)

    Your Drive is 'Defaulting' to 4x/2.4x
    - because that is the lowest Write Strategy Available in the Firmware Support
    - for the particular Media

    Your GSA-H50N is an 18x Burner
    DL support : up to 10x ( with the right Media )

    Specs:
    48xCDR CAV
    32xCDRW ZCLV
    18xDVD-R CAV
    6xDVD-RW CLV
    10xDVD-RDL PCAV
    18xDVD+R CAV
    8xDVD+RW ZCLV
    10xDVD+RDL PCAV
    12xDVD-RAM PCAV


    The slowest I would ever burn 16x SL media is 4x
    but your results will be much better @ 8x , 12x ... even 16x

    For DL : 2.4x or 4x .... faster if you can get away with it


    Why .... Would you want to want to Burn Slower ?
    1x is like ... watching paint dry ....:confused:

    Burning Too Slow .... can be just as Bad as Burning too fast


    Your drive was intended to operate in UDMA4
    PIO would only cause you more problems

    What is the Issue
    - That would lead you to believe that burning - that slow
    - would be 'beneficial' ?

    :confused:

    answer why

    why i want to burn 1x or 2x ...

    i burn backup of my Movie / Xbox 360 game
    and if i burn up to 4x

    i dont try to run a game if i burn in 4x
    but i see in a lot of forum, it's better to burn in 1x or 2x
    for that type of media.

    As I had stated
    Your Burner simply does not have the Firmware Support
    - to Burn that media - that Slow

    LG GSA-H50N Super Multi DVD Burner Review

    If you can't burn Movies at 8x using 16x media
    - there's something else going on ....
    I'd first look at the Media

    I might suspect other Issues - causing your Playback Problem
