LG WH16NS40 wont write DL Media - Design Flaw

Tech_Savy 11/7/2022

I bought two of these. The User Manual and Spec sheet say that the drive will write to DVD+R Double Layer Media. So does the advertising. But the fact is because of a design flaw this drive will not write to DVD+R DB Media only non-existent DVD-R DL Media. So if writing DL media is important this drive is useless to you.

It wrote one disk.

TSB0192 3/15/2022

After the first disk it only worked as a reader. Different software gives different errors but Ive seen it recognizing blank disks newly bought as having only 1.3GB free and another showed 4.4GB free yes I made sure it was free space and not data on the disk but still bombed out due to space concerns. I will add that I havent tried using it after first use until just now trying to burn a new install disk. But every disk? Even generics arent that bad.
