Seeking read/write capabilities for drive: HL-DT-ST BDDVRW CT30N

Seeking for information about:

HL-DT-ST BDDVRW CT30N

What formats it can read/write, what speeds read/write for media such as DVD+R DL, etc.

Google and Yahoo search yield no specific information that I can tie into drive so would ask here for assistance.

Many CD Speed sort of tools seem only to state what formats it supports but not specifications for speeds supported.

Thank you for helping with this information

Thank you for reply

Is HLDS same spec as HLDT?

I am not sure if the model is the same

I assume HL is for identifying as Hitachi LG

Is Version the DT?

Unknown what ST is for

Are all CT30N drives the same?

Thank you for helping

Yes.

HL-DT-ST = [B]H[/B]itachi-[B]L[/B]G [B]D[/B]a[B]t[/B]a [B]St[/B]orage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitachi-LG_Data_Storage)

Yes all CT30N drives share the same hardware but can have different OEM firmwares on board. As far as I know the only firmware ever released for these drives is the A101 from DELL.
