Hi! Finally you can get this burner cheaper here in germany, check www.snogard.de, but anyway, this recorder is great, but cant handle sd2. Only those cheap phillips recorders and other cheap recorders can handle sd2 perfectly, quite bizarre, but look at the sd2 compatible recorder list. Yeah, i know, some plextor recorders can handle it, too, but mainly cheap one, no new and fast one. Hope the burners in the future will handle that. CYA!
