DVD burner upgrade

Hi , I have a Matshita UJ-822S in my IBM T42p portable laptop. I was wondering if I could upgrade the burner to a Dual layer ±RW burner

Thanks for helping out

Maybe you could do that by upgrading it’s firmware. Try searching the internet.
Welcome to cdfreaks.

The only dual layer upgrade that will fit is the Panasonic UJ-832. They are kinda pricey.

Any Idea where one might find those panasonic drives? I’ve looked around and all I can find is one on e-bay for 200 bucks

eBay and Lenovo are the only places to get them.
