hi
havin headaches a while now with my emprex DVDRW IDE1008 ,for a while it was burning 1 dvd for every 4 or 5 coasters,used freeze about 22% most times ,though never any trouble writing cd,s ,i updated firmware from 055 to 0159 but now whenever i load blank dvd+r it recognises it as dvd-r,tried several different media that worked before and still same , hope someone may able to tell me a workaround this problem ,or if i should just take hammer to drive now,which considering the hassle it caused me wouldnt bother me at all
