It wrote one disk.After the first disk, it only worked as a reader. Different software gives different errors, but I've 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 haven't tried using it after first use until just now, trying to burn a new install disk. But every disk? Even generics aren't that bad.

How can I make this Blu-ray drive work on Windows 10? I bought it a few years ago and just installed it. I can open and close the Blu-ray. I downloaded the firmware/driver that is supposed to work with it, but Windows 10 doesn't recognize the device.

I'm getting a weird pause and dropout as the Blu-Ray shifts from chapter to chapter. Research seems to show that a firmware update is needed, but I have the latest from LG.

I have the WH16NS40 config'ed in an external drive housing as an OWC Mercury Pro Professional External USB 3.1 Gen 1 Optical drive. OWC is so hyper-MAC, cannot tell what burner software I can use for PC. I want to be able to burn all formats esp. M.

What type of m-disk will this burner burn?
Asked by: Terrybee
I quite successfully burned an M-Disc BDXL 100 Gb with no problems as well as a DVD M-Disc. So I'm assuming it will work with all M-Disc formats.

I have a new WH16NS40, and when I play Blu-Ray Movie every 10 - 12 seconds the playback will hesitate for less than a second.
