    Hi there,

    I have two Pioneer DVR-108 drives inside my Dual G4 machine. I have been using them perfectly for DVD-to-DVD copying for some time now, but recently I was interested in burning some Dual Layer discs, which the DVR-108 should be capable of doing.

    However, after buying 10 DL discs I have now managed to get halfway through them, and yet not a single one has burned successfully. I have noticed that a newer version of the Firmware is available for the drive, and yet I only see a downloadable EXE for Windows.

    Is it possible to find a Mac version? If not, is it safe for me to remove the drive, stick it on a PC and upgrade the firmware from there and put it back, or is the reason the firmware is only available for the PC a hint that I should not upgrade it for the Mac? And finally, do you think that upgrading the Firmware will possibly make any difference?

    Thanks!

    :-Joe

    I had an LG drive that specifically told you to update the firmware on a PC if it was in a mac, because they didn't have a mac updater.

    Have you tried Patchburn to see if it's a driver issue?
