The box says it supposed to write 8x BD-R DL but it doesn't. I've used Verbatim 6x BD-R DL disks and have made three coasters one using Nero and two using Windows 7 explorer. I was able to burn to the BD-R disk that came with the drive. When I called LG (I never could get them to return my emails) they told me it was discontinued and they never did update the original firmware. I'm surprised it was still on the shelf (thanx Best Buy).
