Lacie External Usb Writer

Hi,
I am new.

Can any one advice on the LACIE Portable EXTERNAL USB DVD WRITERwith LightScribe?

I am using it now, but I was not able to get any information, in terms of it reliablity, speed and firmware updates.

Your kind input will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Its a rebadged drive of some sort.

Nero Info Tool can tell you what model it really is. Firmware revision too.

Thanks…

…and the answer was?

No firmware updates…

I contacted the local Lacie dealer, they normally do not have any firmware updates offer to customers.

They do offer (for a fee) to update the firmware.

Anyway, my Lacie is working like a charm and do plan to use it for a while.
