Which departments of Hitachi will answer the questions? Hard disc or optical storage? If the second, does it include the optical disc part (Hitachi-Maxell)?
How do you comment the fact that some dvd recorder manufacturers overspeed some of your media?
While dvd recorder drive manufacturers have introduced 18x and 20x recording speed drives, we have not seen any media rated at these speeds. Why is this? Are there any 18x or 20x media in your plans?
Why isn’t the disc’s MID code printed at the package? Could this be done in the future, please?
To the drive design department:
Renesas based drives don’t support 12x recording of DVD-R media. What causes it?
You use Renesas and Panasonic controller chips on your drive while the rest drive manufacturers use one brand only.
You release drives with almost identical specifications but one using Renesas and the other Panasonic chip. What is the reason?
Are there any thoughts on leaving Panasonic or Renesas?
Many people prefer buying laptops with LG optical drives, but most laptop brands don’t provide any firmware updates. Why this happens? Is it because of you? Could you consider releasing firmwares in the feature for your laptop drives, please?
The LG clones of some of your drives eg H10/H12, use UDMA2, while Hitachi drives use UDMA4. What is the reason?
Do you visit forums about data storage, like cdfreaks?
