Some info for anyone interested in this drive:

So far, all of my attempts to burn DVD-Rs or DVD+Rs at 8x have failed, and that includes an attempt on Ritek's 8x DVD+Rs with the RITEKR03 Media ID code. From what I've heard, only Mitsubishi's MCC03 DVD+Rs can be burned at 8x on this drive, but I have yet to personally confirm that.

On the bright side though, this drive is absolutely awesome where burn quality is concerned!!

The drive works fine with DVD+R MCC03. It also works with Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 8x. New firmware will be available in 1 week. More in the upcoming review.

Excellent news!! I'm really excited to see how your review goes Ant! Although I think I can already guess the conclusion

I'm personally *very* interested in The DVR-A07... To me, it looks to be the most promising recorder avaliable.. And the retail versions look a whole lot better than the OEM, wonder if there's any performance difference... I wish they would put an 8MB buffer, I'm over these little 2MB cache.

An 8MB burner is just about as useless on a DVD burner as a 2MB one. A 64MB buffer might make a noticable difference though... but would probably cost a lot more money too!

Clint,

there is no difference between the A07 and the 107. The differences are in the package (retail box) and in the software bundles.

I dont know where you got that weird idea that it can be 2 different drives

he got the idea from seeing the Japanese model of the A07, which looks more like a piece of art then an actual burner. It was originally thought that it would be the retail look of the drive, but it turned out to be a Japanese thing only.

Hmm... The price is very good now. Perhaps I should get one soon. The question though is which version of Nero supports it. The supported recorder list on Ahead's website doesn't mention 107/A07 at all. I suspect I'll have to upgrade from Nero 5.5 to version 6 to use this drive, correct? That'll add quite a bit to the upgrade cost, unfortunately...

Just becasue the drive isn't listed doesn't mean it won't work. I haven't tried it on Nero 5.5, but I am pretty sure it will work fine.

That's more of a drive feature then a software feature really.

okay, you've peaked my interest. I assume you mean Verbatim DVD+Rs right? I'll pick some up this weekend if I can and give it a try.

They need to begin work on the new firmware now though... then we'll get 8x DVD+R burning *AND* 8x DVD-R burning!

That would be nice! I wish I wasn't at work right now and could play with this [:I]
