LG GH24NSBO sata internal
i recently bought this writer to replace my older external lg super multi GSA-E40L
as when the dvd had finnished burning it would not play on a normal dvd player
only the x-box and pc/laptop
im having issues burning dvd-r
ive tried maxell dvd-r 16x discs
traxdata dvd-r 16x
cheap home brand dvd+rw 4x from the local Supermarket
the problem i have is i try burning an already converted dvd movie say 2gb
the maxell and traxdat take about 1 hour to burn at 8x
and the rw burns in about 10 min at 4x
there is no lower burn settings for the maxell or traxdata discs only option it gives me is 8 or 16
if any one has got any information i would be very grateful

You're using crap media, which is part of your problem. The only good discs you can probably buy in the UK are Verbatim (avoid the Life series if they sell it there - not sure if that is a US only designation or not - Life is cheap crap, but all other Verbatim is great).
Burning at slower speeds and I mean no more than 4x, can sometimes enable problem crap media to perform better.
Your drive slowness sounds like a "your burner is in PIO mode" problem. Are you running XP in this computer? If so, then you may need to research forcing the burner to stop using PIO mode.
Use the free ImgBurn for burning. EVERYTHING else is far inferior.
LG burners are a big OK, but they are not the best. Pioneer is hands down the best in my opinion.
Converted with what to exactly what ?
The same file burns slower at a faster speed but faster at a slower speed between R & RW media ?
And are the "RW's" actually "RW's" or +R's ?
As +R's also have the RW logo on them when they are not rewritable.
And his specs have 8.1 listed as is OS ?
I am wondering if he is using something that is converting before burning ?
Just seems like way too much weirdness going on without enough specific information.
thanks for the responce,
i have found that the disc will burn at 8x using nero burning rom 10
i was trying to burn them using convert x to dvd 126.96.36.199
the media id on the maxell discs comes back as
Manufacturer Name : [Moser Baer India Ltd.]
which is poor but its the same pack that works on 3 other writers 1 lg and 2 hp
thats what i could not understand
ill have to download imgburn and try that
verbatim ive seen are these

my machine is an intel i5 4gb ram running windows 8.1
when i had the pc built 3 weeks ago
my new writer had not arrived so they gave me an old hp HP DH-16AAL-DT2 writer to put me on untill it came
that burns to the disc perfect
ive converted films using convert x to dvd 188.8.131.52 as i have for a while now
ive always burnt them with the same program and had no issues burning to the maxell discs
with the old external writer and a HP DH-16AAL-DT2 that came in the machine when i bought it
i had a new pc built
4 GB Ram
1TB + 500GB HDD
the writer got lost in the post
the builder gave me his old HP DH-16AAL-DT2
but didnt know how much use it had, had
i convert films using convert x to dvd 184.108.40.206 and burn them with the same program
onto maxell dvd-r 16x
ive used the same disc for years with minimal issues
the new lg drive arrived so i had it installed and set off burning an allready conerted film to test it
every time i tried to burn it would start of at a normal burn speed, speed right up for a few moments then slow right down
taking about 1 hour or so to burn
i figured it was the writer that was at fault
went to maplins and bought a samsung one for £40
had the same problem, so i took that back for a refund
i had a few other makes of dvd's layinig around so i tested those burning the same 2gb film
the maxell 16x dvd-r would burn at 8x and take about 1 hour to complete
the traxdata 16x dvd-r would burn at 8x and take about 1 hour to complete
i found an old rewritable supermarket brand disc in the draw
asda 4x dvd+rw
set it of burning at full 4x and it completed in around 10 min
ive updated the firmware from lg's site and it still the same
i then decided to try burning the same converted film with nero burning rom 10
using the maxell discs
the burn was completed in around 8 min at 8x
so now i dont know what to think
is the problem the
convert x to dvd
or a conbination of all
Until you are willing to accept the advice that multiple members here told you that YOUR DISCS SUCKS AND ARE BAD, we are kind of limited in what we can do. If you don't want to accept that, there's not much point in us going on further.
By the way, check some of your older burns of these "great" discs and see if they still play. You might be surprised to find out that discs you burned a few years ago from Maxell no longer work or have serious playback problems. This is because they are ... wait for it... BAD QUALITY. Also, thanks for ignoring the suggestion to use ImgBurn. I'm not seeing any point in sticking around any longer here.
