Lightscribe

hey guys
i got the IDE ASUS DRW-1814BL
i just got ubuntu linux
so am thinking of trying the lightscribe
(i uesd to have win me and the lightscribe drivers would not install on win 9x)

but i heard people having problems with this drive
like burning one lightscribe disk and then the drive dying
so am woulding if any one here has the drive and have burnt lightscribe disk
and can you tell me how many lightscribe cds you brurnt? also what firmware you got ?

it burns cd ,dvd , dvd dl fine
and thats why am worried becasue i need a drive to burn my stuff

also i see theirs a update for the drive(firmware)
