“Where I live it’s January 5, 2005.” DUDE They are Verbatim the go through time at 4x Speed (At their prices They sure can afford to.) :slight_smile:

…Actually when this Kid reaches your age you will be able to afford to

I wonder if any manufacturers will release firmwares to allow current +R DL drives to write -R DL discs. Im hoping BenQ do it for their 1620PRO drive.

Plextor for their PX-716 offers a fw that enables writting of DVD-R DL at 2x. regards, Stephen

If discs are only in testing, why, and how are drives available that can write to DVD-R DL? What happens if testing proves that a change needs to be made? What will happen to writers currently available? Hope any changes that might be made can be applied by a FW update.

Good point, but the same situation applied to 16x SL discs. The burners capable of writing at 16x were out well before the 16x discs had been tested. Suffice to say, no problems have been found with these yet.
