NEC 6100 question

I am using a Dell Lat 800 with an NEC 6100 drive. Doing a search on the web it looks like the drive can possibly be made to write DVD-Rs. I thought the TDBs had something, but I can’t get their webpage to open. I tried flashing firmware for the 6500 but I get an error message. Can it de done and if so where can I find the information? Thanks.

I followed the directions here
and it worked for me. Cheap media for DL doesn’t seem to work very well though.
