I’ve purchased HP Pavilion dv1000 with TSSTcorp TS-L532M DVD-+RW about a year ago. After few months of using it I realised that that writer is the worst possible I could’ve got. I tried to find some firmware for it to flash it but after I’ve seen in forums just how many people have problems with it, I’ve decided to just swap it instead of flash it.
The only laptop type DVD RW that I can find I short period of time is NEC AD-7170.
Does anyone have particular experience with this drive? Is it good quality? I burn a lot of DVD's and always use Verbatim (MCC) (or Taiyo Yuden) discs. I got to the point when both writers that I have in my house are failing writing the discs (the other one is just too old to support 16x discs now found everywhere) so I need a quick but good quality fix asap.
Thanks in advance…
