Anyone here have a Sony DRU-530U or DRX-530UL DVD burner?

    How has your experience been with this drive? Mine will not burn 4x on 4x hp media and a few people at CDfreaks are also complaining about a similar problem.

    If you own one, let me know how yours work for you.

    Have you updated the firmware on the drive? http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php

    I have an older DRU-500AX and it burned fine out of the box at 4x, while I've read about others having trouble.

    Also some drives are picky about media. With my Sony I have found that the Ritek G04's are the best.

    I'd recommend going to http://www.blank-cd-cdr.com/dvdsamplers.html and pay the $7 to get a demo pack of a couple of different brands and see which ones work well for you.

    Also, you can go to www.dvdrhelp.com and look up the burner and you can read reviews of what types of media work best.

    HTH.
