Technical support says that it really is == nec1300A, but firmwares must have to be from mitsumi and there is no updates available yet. They does not know media incompabilities right now :~D. I have not tested drive very much, but Thats Write 4Xdvd-r (LEADDATA01) does not work. sony dvd-rw and tdk+r worked wery well. Hope mitsumi produces firmware update in near future, without update i quess it have same issues that nec haves with very oldest firmware. Only reason i selected this drive was price. 189€ without software from Finland.

An OK drive I guess (supposed to be same as NEC ND1300A), but the firmware that came with it (no updates available yet) is c-r-a-p. The drive refuses to burn most of the cheap media (Princo, Nanya, etc...) RitekG04 seems to work. All the expensive brands (TDK, Verbatim, Maxell, etc...) seem to work fine too.
A friend of mine has a ND1300A with some firmware upgrades and it burns almost anything just fine. It's fucking annoying to wait for a firmware upgrade (that might never come?) when you know that the drive could work with almost anything with the proper firmware. If I had known all this, I'd have spent few extra €s and bought the NEC instead.

Bought my Mitsumi drive just a few days ago. Works like a charm with both DVD-RW and DVD+RW discs.

Bought my Mitsumi in August 2003 for 189 euros (approx $207)
It has worked like a charm! No firmware updates have been required. I've tried two different media, both worked without any problems.
