Hi.

I'm looking to buy an NEC ND-3500 - it looks great but the only function it lacks is the ability to write to a dual layer REWRITABLE DVD disk.

From what I've read, these don't actually exist (yet) although they would be the most important type of DVD disk to me as I'd use them (and reuse them) for backup.

Is it likely (or even possible) that the ND-3500 could have this functionality added with a firmware update in the future? If not, I may wait for a DVD DL (RW) drive to be produced before buying one.

Many thanks,

Kroma

So far the technology for DL RW does not exist, and AFAIK is not planned. What is planed is DL-R (today only DL+R) exists, and an upgrade in DL burning speed. So if you wait, it might be a long wait.. IMHO the Blue Ray burners will become mainstream before we see DL RW . I agree that at the prices of DL media, RW would make much more sense, but,alas, that is what there is.

eros thanks for your explanation, i have to agree on that, DVD-+/RW9 technology hasn't yet announced, only 8X DVD+R9

It is highly possible to be able to do this.
