I have one of these drives in a laptop. It can’t read any burnt media very well–make it hard to move large amounts of data to it or to recover backups.
The firmware rev on the drive is “2.25” and the ‘serial number’ is “2000/01/21”.
Any ideas who really made this and if I can get a firmware upgrade for it which might fix the media reading issues? Compaq/HP doesn’t seem to be very well organized in the support department–expecially not for an older machine like this.
