Rated it a 10 based on ability to burn bootable DVD+R DL disks.
Very reliable using Verbatim DVD+R DL media, even using the dumb RecordNow 7 program. Most of these can be read by most slim notebook combo drives and DVDRs.
A 2002 slim combo drive can read them.
A 2003 MATSHITA slim combo drive usually can read them, sometimes it has trouble.
A 2004 MATHSITA slim combo drive can always read them.
A 2006 Phillips DVDR DL slim drive can read them.
A PowerMac G5 Pioneer DVR-109 can read them.

However, my new MacBook Pro C2D 15" with LG GWA4080MA has bad trouble recognizing them.

anyone if there is any way for this drive to support bitsetting change.

I have read on other posts that some that do not support it, a simple hacked firmware update would do it.

This is a slimline laptop drive and does support dual layer.

Can be bought for around $100 - $120.
