View Full Version : PB DVDR drives, upgradable?

Apr 22, 2004, 04:13 PM
I'm going to get one of the new 12 PBs, possibly with a superdrive. What I want to know, is, can I eventually upgrade the firmware on the DVD drive to burn double layer discs? If I can't burn full size DVD's, then having the drive in there is basically useless to me at the moment (for 200 bucks) when I can get an external one down the road to do what I really want.

I heard the firware update was coming out for the pioneer drives used in the PM's, but what about the PB's?

It depends on whether the difference in burning single vs. double layer is handled in hardware or software/firmware.
