Every major company offers fimrware updates for upgrading to 8x DVD-R writing capabilities mostly at no cost while LiteON releases a new writer 812s with this feature.
There has been no statement from LiteON whether 8x DVD-r capabilities will be added and with the release of their 8x DVD-R writer i strongly doubt it.
Besides that - I'm also frustrated that still with firmware HSOP i get very poor results burning DVDs not to mention burning at 8x! This is almost impossible and produces not working DVDs with lots of errors. I wonder why its called an 8x DVD+r writer??
Anyone else shares my experiences?
