    Hi,
    I just ran my writer through DVD Identifier. I bought some 8X fujifilm DVD+r's and Khypermedias but can't write them. I was hoping if I had a firmware upgrade, it might work?!
    I have a Memorex burner. The following is what the identifier says:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I went to the Memorex website, and emailed the support, and they said they haven't made a firmware upgrade for the 8X yet. Is this correct, or can I get one that will work?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!!
