Ive got the same drive. Right now im using the vy06 firmware for the dru-700a. Ive found mine to be kinda picky with media and have tried all different kinds. I finally found sony brand (go figure. ) Rihco jpn r01 dvd +r's give me excellent results with that firmware (with bitsetting and burned at 4x). I see that since i last visited they have a vy08 and a vy08 patched firmware. I havent trieds those out, but mabye ill give it a whirl once my current stack of dvds runs out. As the saying goes, if it aint broke dont fix it. :bigsmile: Codeguys site has everything you need to get it patched up. Good luck!
