Hi emperor, thank you for your help. What do you exactly mean when you say "install the drive at PC"? I installed the drive with lacie drivers, but my drive is an external drive, so I can't install it *into* a PC (unless you tell how to do it ;-) ). Can I upgrade the drive if it is external? in case, which patch should I use and how can I do it. My drive is described here: http://www.lacie.com/products/product.htm?id=10101
sorry but I'm Italian and my english is a bit poor...
For minos: I used 4x certified dvd, but nec says I should be able to burn a verbatim -r 4x certified at 8x with my drive (read on media compatibility list on nec site). Also, a friend of mine has an internal drive (a different model) and is able to write the same dvds at 8x. Thank you for helping me too!
please, let me know if I have any way to upgrade my firmware and, in case, if it would be helpful. Thanks everybody.
