    Dude, I am sorry I bought a DUD( Dell ). Oh, it is good PC, but DELL is way behide on updates and pacthes. Anyway to the point, my burner is a HL-GT-ST model GRA 4120 B. I am sure it is a OEM from LG for DELL. If they updated the GSA 4120 B for the dual layer, will DEll ever get of thier *!%*# and update?

    *thread moved*

    I highly doubt there will be an official firmware update from LG to allow DL burning from a SL burner. The best you could hope for would be a hacked firmware and even then those have been proven to work only some of the time. This link would be your best bet:

    D'oh! I believe I need to slow down when reading specs.

    PC manufacturers tend to take their sweet time posting firmware updates on their sites so you may be better off checking the site I linked to above :)
