If the computer is still under warranty, you’ll need to check with them for a firmware upgrade. This is one of the reasons I buy custom built computers, instead of the big named ones. It’s my first DVD writer, so admittedly I have nothing to compare it to. Thu Nov 04, 2: Even tried looking for the update before BSOS The land of socks and Birkenstocks Registered:
