[quote=gouet;2175639]i had been reading some time and the 3.3 does work with the hp and the firmware that hp offers cant write dvd-r and i need to write dvd-r thats why im looking for the 3.3[/quote]Forget it and go for a new drive. Even if you manage to crossflash the drive, it won’t be able to properly handle any modern media at all.
[quote=coolcolors;2175740]Asking us to do something impossible isn’t going to find a solution for your problem if your burner can’t burn -r media then it won’t no matter what you do. It has to have the -/+ capability to burn both -R and +R media.[/quote]I remember that earlier Benq drives did not support -R. Later, a firmware update could be purchased (!) that also enabled -R support.
OEM drives are famous for crippled media support, so crossflashing might be an option.
Also sounds like you need to buy a new drive that support both -/+ burn formats.
I totally agree. The list of supported media of that drive is very short and lacks all MIDs available today.
