this drive is on sale at a local store (Media Markt, Germany). I did not find very much information about that on the web, except some data a UK based store provided: http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=605412
Also, nothing could be found on Sonys websites (indicating: No support - Do not buy). I suspect, that this might be some OEM-only drive which is also indicated by another posting here, the autor wrote, that this drive was part of his Medion computer.
Might this drive be a Liteon SHM- based drive? Further information is appreciated.
Thanks to all,
