I like many other people have been eagerly following the emergence of dual layer dvd burners and firmware upgrades and found this at the korean lg site http://www.lge.co.kr/about/news/news_read.jsp?cnews=1&seq=3566 It was posted a couple of days ago but i haven't heard anything about it. The words double layer and 8.5 GB appear and the image looks identical to the current multi format burners! Is this simply a new burner or possibly a firmware upgrade? I have tried a few translation services but the text is mainly technical specifications so difficult to interpret. Any feedback from those with Korean language skills would be helpful or anyone else who can explain.
