I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have a LG GWA-4166 drive that has problems recognizing DVD's. For example I put in a Verbatim DVD +R 16x disk in the drive and sometimes it states that the maximum burn speed is 8X. When it does this the disk burns improperly (at 8x) and there is a blank spot in it with no data. But when the Drive recogonises it as a 16X disk everything burns fine. I have applied the firmware update provided by HP and the problem still exists. I really do not want to try to crossflash the drive to a GSA-4166 because all that I have read is that it does not work and then I have to buy a new drive. Right now I am throwing away about 25% of the cakepacks that I buy and am trying to avoid that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
