    Are DVD+R discs on sale?

    And the firmware does not need to be that new if you have a 16X burner like I do

    That would depend upon who made the burner, when it was programmed and
    whose making the verbs this month! Nothing much to do with your burners
    speed. Yes 16x burners have newer firmware, define newer, vbg!

    LOL. I have a Samsung 16X burner that I bought for $50. It is called TSST-Corp something or other. I normally burn at 8X since I only have 8X discs LOL but it is made to burn fine at 16X as well.

    I prefer these the best: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...onics&v=glance

    Personally, I think this is a better choice for 2 reasons - 1. They are cheaper 2. If you guys all say to burn at 4x (I burn at 8x and it works fine), why pay more for 16x discs? Memorexes are the best - at least I have had no problems at 8x on these - went a whole 50 pack without a single coaster. Can't say the same on the Philips though.

    BTW That is not the drive I have - it is called TSST-Corp not TS-something. Here is the one I have:
    http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0216119

    I bought it there too - works perfectly!

    BTW the site does not say this but the technical name is: TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552U

    @BR7 - according to HP here if it identifies as revision c then it takes you here where it looks like the latest official fw for 640c is JS04.
