Perhaps a stupid question (812s firmware update query)

I have not been here in over a year and was just wondering, are there any firmware updates that would turn my LiteOn 812s into a Dual Layer recorder…or will that require new hardware?

…and is the DL media getting any cheaper?


you can turn your drive into a 832S:

if you go to and download that file, it will turn your driv into a Dual layer burner. and as for media prices, still around $10 a disc.

wow thanks…but $10…ouch.
