Mine is called LaCie d2 DVD+-RW DL and the SKU is 300920, not 300 so it may be a previous version but I dont like how LaCie names their products. Here's a review:

The guts is an NEC ND-3520a. Using it w/MacOSX.3.9 there are probs w/ the OS in DL mode. I've had bad luck with Memorex discs and good luck with Fuji

Burnt 2 CDs and 2 DVD 4.7GB and for .avi and .mpg files I get a CRC error message: the files ARE in the media after burning, but Windows XP sees them as 9 KB --> the menu in right-button of mouse does not open, and no media player can open the file! I cannot even copy it back to a hard disk.
Someone's got a clue what to do?

I have had no problem burning any of the various formats. I have no problem playing them back in various stand alone players. They were encoded with either DVDSANTA or NEROVISION2.
The Verbatim 8x dvd-r disk bundled with the burner seems to burn at 12x. The Ridata 8x dvd+r I have burn only at 4x.
both USB2.0 and FIREWIRE seem equally speedy.
The case is sturdy and with the unit being slightly heavy.
This is my first dvd burner and I am very happy.
