Please help - upgrade liteonit dvd burner for dual layer

vbimport

#1

its an ldw-401s. first of all i dont know if it is capable of writing dual layer, and if not, can’t i just upgrade the firmware to allow it to do so?
it CAN read dual layer, supposedly. help would be appreciated. i have downloaded some firmware upgrades for it, but none of them say what they actually do.
thanks

Welcome to the forum. :flower:

Sorry, but that burner is too old to burn dual layer media, and there are no firmware updates that would fix that.

I’m going to move your thread to our Lite-on subforum heyzeus, where you should get more informed answers.

Edit: Oops, Negritude answered as I was moving it. Looks like you’ll need a new drive heyzeus.
