SH-W162C - Best Firmware?

Hey guys,

I have an SH-W162C installed in a work computer, used nightly to back crucial data. Iā€™d like a firmware that has the widest / greatest support of different media, along with acceptable burn quality - But media acceptance is number one here - Which firmware is best for my needs?

Thank you! :bow:

The latest one :slight_smile:

thanks in adv

You have to capture the video to hdd, edit it and then you can burn it to DVD!
