    I hope it's one of the many burners I own already, but I doubt it.

    I don't think it's going to be either of the drives I currently have - Optiarc AD-7240S and Pioneer DVR-219L. I think it could be a Lite-On drive as there are multiple models of the same type of drive and there are supposedly 6 versions of the drive, but that's a shot in the dark really.

    well i was thinking that also, but i remember reading something that c4 said about lite-on drives not working well with ap2.5 so that kindve made me think maybe something different, i guess time will tell.

    iHAS124B – IN TESTING just have to make sure its the B model if you want to be sure it is compatible.

    Any dual layer discs will work in theory, but only Verbatim discs have burned and verified without errors in c4eva's tests (although he doesn't say what other brands he tested) so it's recommended to only use Verbatims. Either MKM-001-00 (2.4X rated) or MKM-003-00 (8X rated) so the discs you linked to are fine as they are MKM-001-00.

    The difference between the two, other than the rated speed, is that with this new burning firmware the 001 discs can only be burned at 2.4X, while the 003 discs can be burned at 2.4X or 4X.

    Oh yeah, you need to enable a particular setting in ImgBurn too. Go to Tools - Settings... - Write (tab) and check the box next to "Perform OPC Before Write" which performs an optimum power calibration before the actual burn takes place, as that's required to get good burns using this new writing method.
