I’m getting really p***ed off with the Matshita/Panasonic UJ-830s DVD-RAM drive fitted in my Toshiba Satellite L10 notebook which only offers to write my Verbatim 16x DVD+R media at 2.4x. The USB drive I have is great but I can’t always carry that around with the notebook.
I’ve talked to Toshiba who said that “[they] don’t recommend changing the drive due to possible compatibility issues…”, what those issues are they weren’t really able to say. They also said that there will be a firmware update released in the future, but were unable to put any timescale on this.
I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has successfully changed the DVD writer on their notebook and can point me in the right direction.
Any suggestions appreciated.
