    I think my LG DVD Writer got screwed up. Its 3yrs old.

    The prblm I'm facing 4m 2day is I can't burn any CD/DVD. When I'm trying the Copy DVD option it makes the images smoothly but when starts writing it stops and 1% and gives diff types of error messages each time.

    Like sumtimes the burning app get crashed with a msg "has encountered an error and needs to b closed"

    sumtimes it shows "CD/DVD media is corrupted"

    sumtimes it says sumthing like thr is some prblm with burning

    1st I thought its becoz of the DVD/CD is not gud
    But when it doesnt helped I thought may the thr is some prblm with OS as thr is too much process running @ taskmanager

    So stopped less imp services 4m services.msc but it didn't helpd

    Later I thought may b the app is doing prblm......I tried Nero 7, 8 and CDBurnerXP.

    CDBurnerXP says thr is sum prblm in burning so it cudn't burn

    Now I think my DVD Writer itself got screwed up.

    So is thr ny sw or sumthing to test the DVD Writer??

    Frndz plz help.....I sticked with ths 4 the whole day and lossed many DVD's and CD's trying to identify the prblm.

    If u too think my DVD Writer is a kaput thn plz suggest a good DVD Writer on a low budget. I think @ rs 1200/- I can get a gud DVD Writer.

    Wch one is good? LG, Samsung, Sony or Lite-On??

    I belive in LG and Lite-On......

    One of my friend said tat ASUS DVD Writer's r gr8....I dont think so...is it????


    Plz help
    Thnx in advance

    Connect DVD writer to any other PC and try burning. 3 years is a long time and IMO the DVD RW has gone kaput. I prefer LG/Samsung for 1k-1.2k

    LG/Samsung will be better since they have more service centers. Also opt for sata instead of ata if your mb permits.

    ^Get LG/Samsung SATA DVD RW's. They perform well and Sony is not worth the premium. I don't think the model number matters, but still, i think it is GH22 or something like that.

    Sony Optiarc AD-7240 or Samsung SH223F. Both are good and almost of the same price.

    Samsung used to be notorius for tray malfunction...hope that is a thing of past.

    Anyone having any experience with ASUS DVD Writer? Their CD Writers were rock solid :)
