So I have about 120GB of personal pictures that I'm working on making a backup by burning to Blu-Ray single layers (23.4GB each formatted) with my LG Blu-Ray burner (model WH10LS30K). I was hoping to burn them directly using Seven's built-in optical burning capabilities. Problem is, I only get about 1 good disc for every 5 bad ones!!! I'm getting really sick of burning $1 coasters...
I have tried burning both as a "live disc" and "all at once," but neither works reliably... When I burn it all at once, the entire disc seems to burn but then windows comes up with a window saying the disc did not burn successfully, and the disc is DOA (once in great while it will successfully burn, but I haven't had a good one in about 7 tries now). If I try the live disc route, it will burn around 6-8 GB and then come up with an error saying the file system has changed and it cannot burn the file. Once this error happens, the disc will not accept any new files but the ones that got on there are good. Tried changing burn speed between 1x and 8x, no affect (the drive is capable of 10x, but the BD-R discs are only 4x).
As far as I can tell there are no firmware upgrades for the LG WH10LS30K, and the only driver apparently available is the Windows one that auto-installed when I got the drive.
