Defaults to PIO mode with old firmware

Ronald M., Newegg
22 November 2004
  • Summary: I have had good luck with mine AFTER I upgraded the firmware. Before I did so, I got awful results playing back DVD movies, because the drive would switch from DMA to PIO mode. In device manager, I got a message saying the drive had <font>d</font>ropped back to PIO mode because of frequent errors.

Sony 700A

Luis M., Newegg
8 September 2004
  • Summary: A great product with no flaws. It worked right out the box and it's so quiet sometimes you can't tell if it's actually burning your dvds. This is a burner you can count on. And thanks Newegg for great delivery

Excellent Burner

Chad F., Newegg
1 September 2004
  • Summary: buyers beware when buying OEM dual layer drives that are not firmware flashable. with the new dual layer recording recording capaibility, it's VERY important to keep your drive up to date with the latest firmware upgrades a manufacturer releases.

Great Drive

Anonymous, Newegg
26 July 2004
  • Summary: Once Again, both New Egg and Fed Ex come through with awesome service. I received this drive a day earlier than expected, which is usually the case every time I've ordered from New Egg. What can I say about the DRU700A?

Great peice of hardware

Jason C., Newegg
17 June 2004
  • Summary: Once again new egg delivers. Not only is this a nice looking peice of hardware, it's a great value for a name brand piece of equipment. I've burned both a DVD and a couple CD's all came out perfect. I cant wait until dual layer media is actually available so I can really put this baby to the test.

Buena grabadora

Sirkius, Ciao
