    My media colour is a blue / purble color. Does anyone else have
    that problem with there LG 4163B? Can't find any info on google for
    this model. thanks.

    I have the same DVD burner and have no problems. I do use the silver media
    not the colored media you use so this may be the problem. I use Nero 6 as
    my burning program and am very pleased with it. I used Roxio with very
    unsatisfactory results. There are many burning programs and I have tried
    most but I always go back to Nero. Which program do you use?

    Good luck!

    should I not be doing any computer work when burning? Have you tried
    purple / blue color media? Also, is it necessary to check for
    errors. I do but it takes twice as long to finish the DVD. tx

    Most manufacturers and knowledgeable gurus suggest that you do nothing else
    while burning including allowing a screen saver to run. I do nothing while
    I burn and I do not use colored disk due to the problems such as we are
    discussing. I tried once before to use the color media and had bad results
    but this was with another brand burner. After I purchased a different
    burner media, the problem went away. Checking for errors is not a guarantee
    just a method telling you in advance you have a bad burn.

    This drive offers a firmware update but I would suggest trying a different
    media first. If a firmware update goes bad, you can throw the drive away!
    If you are not knowledgeable about firmware updates, I suggest getting a
    professional to do it.
