    so only 2 drives support that???

    somebody told the sony is a rebadged oporite, and he was thinkinf of flashing it with oporite firmware.

    somebody else then said that sony locked the feature out of the hardware.

    Hi damatrixz
    Actually its two product lines with 5 burners each - mind you Optorite and Accesstek have the same model numbers. Sanyo has finally come out with its own drive - do a google of HD burn for futher information.
    HD burn is great but you need a HD burner to play it back . I think it is a great idea that will die without further drive support. As the price of DVD discs drop, the chances of further support are thin.
    I think someone has confused Sanyo with Sony. Sony does have the "Power Burn" to stop buffer overruns.
    I hope this helps
