    I have a laptop with a dvd+rw drive. I was using Nero 6 and saw that the dvd drive is manufactured by sony. Sony mostly supports -r, but produces +/- drives. I know mac's use sony drives with firmware that allows only -rw burning. How could I, or better yet, where can I check if a firmware upgrade will allow me to do both + and - burning?

    Thanks

    You can search on dvdrhelp.com for a web site that offers firmaware for burners. I've been to a few before, but don't remember the names.

    If the drive is a +R drive, I don't think you can do anything to it to be able to burn -R's.
