My brother has a TOSHIBA Satellite P30 PSP30C-RV200E. 3 GHz. It has the MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-820S [CD-ROM drive].
I tried burning a movie with it using DVD+R and noticed that it had a max burn speed of 4X but it would only burn Verbatim 16X at 2.4X. I burned it twice because I thought I had made a mistake. I did not see any firmware update at the Toshiba Canadian site for the drive although they had one for the notebook.
I also noticed that Nero did not report that BURNPROOF was activated so I have to think that the laptop drive doesn't have it.
Here are the specs:
Here is the list for their updates:
So these are the specs for this drive:
Built-in DVD Super-Multi Drive:
Read: CD-ROM (24X), CD-R (16X), CD-RW (8X), DVD-ROM (8X), DVD-R (4X). DVD-RW (2X), DVD+R (2.4X), DVD+RW (2.4X), DVD RAM (2X)
Write: CD-R (16X), CD-RW (8X), DVD-R (4X), DVD-RW (2X), DVD+R (2.4X), DVD+RW (2.4X), DVD RAM (2X)
Oh, and the drive would not copy Syth-SW3 with Anydvd and DVD Decrypter. It reported a read error. Cyclic redundancy. It worked alright with March of the Penguins.
