Windows 7: I think i have a bad dvd burner

I think i have a bad dvd burner

Every time I try to burn a DVD I get this error.







I was reading around and someone said; "Sounds like a bum drive. Invoke warranty replacement, or get a new one if it's out of warranty." and they had the same error as I did when they were burning.
If any one knows what this error means please tell me so I can buy/replace whatever is wrong.



PS: I think I might buy an external DVD Burner today and a different type of DVD

have you tried a different kind of DVD or CD? either manufacturer or burn speeds?

probably a bad drive... but there is still a chance its a compatability issue

I'm trying a different brand of DVD right now and I set the burn speeds to 4x, but on the DVD case it says 16x i'm not sure if I should burn that fast people say there is a better chance of an error.

yeah I would definately try at a lower to medium speed. Most burners/media are compatible, but there are a couple still out there.

I'll post after it finishes if it works and do you know of a good external DVD burner that won't cost too much? I'm in the US if you need to know.

I agree with brady
Unable to recover the TOC is usually a less then optimal cd burner in combination with a not/only merely compatible disc.
The problem is not only finding a brand that matches your burner. Depending on where/what you buy you don't have always the same blanks in the same package. I had more than once Disks from 2 or 3 different manufacturers in one 50-pack.
So I guess it's going to be a new burner in the long run.
I didn't find a matching driver update on LG's page which would have been something else to try

You may also want to see if there is a firmware update for your burner.
Don't abandon you're burner until you've tried everything.

how big is the file you're trying to burn to disk? From what i can see in that log, it can't find a drive large enough. Was the disk you put in a R/W disk with things already written to it?
