this drive came in my packard bell notebook,
i updated the firmware early-on. no reason other than there was a newer version than what i had.
it has 1M34 firmware on for the last 2yrs, the only bad burns come when i move the laptop when its burning.
i have used many different types of media, cheap and nasty to daylight robbery expensive. all good burns.

only downside to this drive is its 1x and -r only
does anyone know of a firmware to make this drive more compatible?

Folks,
I have a question.

I use sony digital 8 camcorder TRV730.
When i record the movie and run it from the camera to TV the picture quality is great.

But when i write the DVD, its bad. please read below to know what i do...

I download the movie on to my HP Pavillion desk top.
Edit the movie with pinnacle software and make an avi file.
Finally write the avi file on to a DVD using internal DVD writer with NERO 6 software.
When i play that DVD there is a reduction in picture quality to almost 50%.
Is that because of transcoding? or because of DVD writer quality?

Is there any way to improve the picture quality? (Software or hardware)

Thanks
Tom

Have not been able to burn any DVDs with Roxio 5 Platinum or Roxio ECDC 6. Burn always fails. Have updated the firmware with no change. Drive always burns CDs fine. I am going to try Nero 6 and see if I have better luck. The problems may be Roxio and not the drive.

Came installed in a Satellite Pro laptop. With FW1330, would not recognise 4x (even 1/2/4x) DVD-R media. With FW1333, it recognises most discs, but only works reliably with good, branded media: TDK, Verbatim, Traxdata(!). Datawrite, Datasafe, Princo, Bulkpaq, etc. will complete writes, but are then not readable, even in the same drive.

I have a Gateway laptop with the Toshiba SD-R6012 DVD burner. I've had it for two months with absolutely no problems. Not one coaster!! My only gripe is that I have not been able to find a firmware upgrade for it. The current version 1G32. (I assume G for Gateway)

Tried to Use EMTec DVD-R:

With Firmware 1332, Drive froze with 5 out of 6 Media (Nero and DVD Decrypter). With Firmware 1337 7 out of 10 Media were recognized and burning was started, but about 50% failed with errors.

No problems with Firmware 1332 and Sony DVD-R, Maxell DVD-R, Pioneer DVD-R and DVD-RW, Verbatim DVD-R and DVD-RW.

Will try more media with 1334 Firmware.

Only fails until I've use Verbatim DataLifePlus 2X.

I've try Princo (cover white), burn ok but errors reading after 50% of the surface.

Try Ritek (G03)...A disaster, can't burn after 6% progress. So imagine reading the DVD...

Verbatim DataLifePlus : 5 success, One fail burning with IC7 (trial version). Success with DVD Decrypter burning .ISO

This DVD Recorder is found in TOSHIBA (and SONY) notebooks. Suspect that once I stick with reliable blank media, that I will be very happy with the drive. Still some testing required, so I am giving the drive a lower rating for now.

TEST RESULTS:
Toshiba 2450 Notebook
DVD Decrypter
DVD2ONE
NERO 5.5.10.15
PRASSI PRIMODVD 2.0
2 VIVASTAR "noname" DVD-R 1X
1 RITEK "noname" DVD-R 1X
1 VERBATIM DVD-RW

Both VIVASTAR DVD-Rs are coasters. The burns completed successfully, but pixelate and lock up less than half way through. (Movies: SHR*K, M*MMYR*T*RNS)

The RITEK DVD-R is perfect; burns and plays back on Standalone TOSHIBA, NORCENT, and on PC DVD-ROM. (Movie: M*MMYR*T*RNS)

The VERBATIM DVD-RW burns successfully but only plays back in its entirety on PC DVD-ROM. Locks on TOSHIBA standalone (as expected), but also locked on NORCENT (UN-expected!!). (Movie: SHR*K)

Had one fail in only a few weeks use. I have tried the following three media types, only one with reliable success.

Optodisc DVD-RW (OW470-000):1 Success 2 not recognized 1 froze while burning.

Memorex DVD-RW: 1 Success 2 others not recognized by drive

Verbatim DataLife Plus DVD-R: about 30 successes, only 1 coaster and that was my fault.
