I bought this model for it's dvd-ram ability in addition to its DVD-R ability. I have a Panasonic E-30 recorder and wanted to be able to copy my dvd's I make on the E-30. I just finished my first DVD copy using nero. I tested it in my Sony 5 disk dvd player and worked fine.
Seems a little picky about media. I am using silver top Princo unbranded media, $1 ea. The problem is getting the media to be recognized as being there in the drive. once it is recognized it burns just fine. I had to go to media info, select my dvd-rom drive then select the DVD burner for it to recognize the media.
I have yet to check DVD-RAM compatability between this bruner and my E-30 recorder. I hope to be able to interchange the data using the ram disks.
Heck for under 2 bills, not a bad deal.
I will return to rate it after I learn more about this unit.
