    Hi everyone,

    I currently own a Lacie external burner ("Lacie 1392 DVD-R/RW+CD drive LUN 0") that contains a "PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-106D"

    Since this model of Pioneer is normaly used as an internal drive, I was wondering if I should expect having compatibility or firmware problem if I open the Lacie enclosure and replace the 106D (that supports only simple layer DVD) with a 116D (which supports DVD-R DL)

    Here's what I see in the "System information" of the "Firewire" section (Sorry for the confusing terms, I have translates the text from my french computer, some of the terms are pretty hard to translate) :

    Code:
    Lacie 1392 DVD-R/RW+CD drive LUN 0
    
    Manufacturer : Lacie Group SA
    Model : 0x0
    GUID : 0xD04B391A05AB26
    Maximum speed : Up to 400 Mb/s
    Connection speed : Up to 400 Mb/s
    "Under-unity":
    Lacie 1394 DVD-R/RW+CD drive LUN 0 Unit :
    Software version of the "unity" : 0x10483
    Unity's identifiant : 0x609E
    Internal program's revision : 0x7738
    Level of product's revision : 1.07
    "Under-unity": Lacie 1394 DVD-R/RW+CD drive LUN 0 SBP-LUN
    and here's what I see in the section "Disc burning" :

    Code:
    PIONEER DVD-RW  DVR-106D :
    
    Internal program's revision : 1.07
    Inter-connection : FireWire
    Burning management : Yes (shipped/managed by Apple)
    Cache : 2000 Ko
    DVD reading : Yes
    CD burning : -R, -RW
    DVD burning :-R, -RW, +R, +RW
    Undervoltage protection of the data buffer : Yes
    Undervoltage protection of the data buffer during the DVD burning :Yes
    Writting strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, CD-Raw, DVD-DAO
    Data : No
    Any problem I should anticipate (firmware flashing, incompatibility, impossibility to get a DVD-DL burner working with this specific Lacie enclosure etc...)?

    Just in case it might help someone in the same situation....

    I finally bought a Pioneer DVR-116d and yes it is fully compatible with the Lacie case I mentionned. And it does work perfectly (already read and burned a dual-layer dvd that works flawlessly).

    No need to upgrade firmware or download anything. It just works!!
    :cool:
