    Hi labajue
    The latest is P1.6 - here's a link.
    The will be a file in this download that will try you how to update the firmware.
    it's pretty easy - only takes a few minutes.

    Sorry about that labajue I forgot to mention that those are the same models for this drive - glad you sorted that out!

    Datawrite uses different manufacturers - some good and some bad.
    So pop a blank disc in the drive. In Nero SmartStart go to ToolKit>cd-dvd speed>disc info tab.
    Check the manufacturer.
    If it's MCC, TY, Ritek, Ricoh try 8x - should be good.
    It's what I burn at on good media.

    Any other manufacturers show up - take it down to 4x.
