Anyway, Ive managed to troubleshoot this drive myself enough to where it will burn CDR's, play DVDS, cdroms,ect. but still no DVD burning capability. I updated the firmware, but still no luck. Whenever I pop in the blank media, it says CD-R drive(f) then available data and used data at 0MB. As if the brand new disk was used or damaged. So it recognises everything BUT DVDR media. How ironic.
Any helpful ideas guys?
