    want to burn double layer on matshita UJ-846

    When I bought my MacBook Pro, I was told it would burn double layer DVD. I'm trying to verify that now, but it doesn't list that capability in system profiler.

    Is it possible to update firmware so that this capability is obtained?
    Am I misreading specs?

    (This is my first foray onto these forums, and after a few years I'm just starting to try to get as much out of my mac as possible. Sorry if this is boring/pedestrian/misguided.)

    MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-846:

    Firmware Revision: FQ3T
    Interconnect: ATAPI
    Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
    Cache: 2048 KB
    Reads DVD: Yes
    CD-Write: -R, -RW
    DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +R DL, +RW
    Write Strategies: CD-TAO, CD-SAO, DVD-DAO
    Media: Insert media and refresh to show available burn speeds

    You can, but make sure they are DVD+R DL discs.

    DVD-R DL will not work.
