Although not listed in the media list for fw 0558, I was able to burn a NRG image with it. I used Boot Type Tool v1.05 and set it to DVD-ROM (and it was listed as such with DVDInfoPro after the successful burn). The movie plays OK on my standalone Apex AD-2600 but will not play on the 1008 or my PC's internal Pioneer DVD-115 DVD-ROM player. I'm assuming this is because the MXL RG02 media code is not listed for the firmware. Hopefully the next revision will "officially" support this media type. I've read that this is quality media and surprised that it is not already supported. The link here (http://www.drvupdate.com/media_list/media_list_1008_dvd-r.htm) says fw 0458 supported MXL RG02. But, this link (http://www.btc.com.tw/drivers/zip/dvd_dual/ChangeList_DRW1008.htm) doesn't show it ever did at all???
