LG GSA-H12N Review

Installation

The LG GSA H12N drive is an IDE drive and like most CD/DVD drives the installation was simple. The drive was detected in Windows XP without any problems. Auto insert notification was disabled.


Nero InfoTool

Above we have a screen shot from Nero's Infotool 4.70.

It is reporting that the read & write speed incorrectly.

You can see from above, that it can can also read: DVD±R / DVD±RW / DVD±R DL / DVD-RAM disks - the drive also supports a buffer underrun protection system for CDs/DVDs and can report C2 errors. Its also reporting that the drive can write CD-Text.

Mount Rainier is not supported and as the LG is a super-multi drive it can read and write to DVD-RAM disks. The firmware on our drive was UL01 and a patched region free firmware was available.

Our review drive is a October 2006 model that came shipped with firmware version UL01. No newer version was available but a patch version to make it region free can be found.

Nero Choose Recorder Option

We can see that the maximum CD speed is 48x and that it supports cuesheets and DAO/96 writing. It also supports the overburning of CDs and the writing of CD-Text information.

BOOKTYPE SETTING

Booktype

The drive allows you to alter the drives Book Type setting. This allows the drive to flag +R/+RW media with a DVD-ROM identifier setting, this is needed because some older DVD players do not recognise disks that identify themselves as "+R" & "+RW". Disks recorded on -R / -RW do not need to use this setting as they have been around longer and are approved by the DVD forum.

The LG drive's book settings are shown above - notice it can not change the booktype for "DVD+RW" disks.
