It's not too hot though, it only burns my Verbatim DL media at 2.4X, while my NEC can burn it at 4X. Some 8X media that can be burned at 16X with my NEC, can only be burned at 8X with the H30L. I dunno. There's no product listing of it, not even at LG korea, let alone a firmware update. Hopefully LG can improve the firmware soon.
it's a very new drive, so it's not listed on LG's websites. they usually take a while (and then some).
for the same reason there's no firmware updates for it. it will be a while.
i'm very surprised about burning Verbatim DVD+R DL at 2.4x only.
what kind of DVD+R DL is it? 2.4x rated or 8x rated?
the 2.4x rated should be able to burn at up to 6x. at least it does on the H10N/L drives.
now i see that the H20N/L do 2.4x Verbatim DVD+R DL at 2.4x only!
and since the H20N is a Panasonic chipset, and the H30N is also Panasonic chipset (and we assume that the H30L is identical to the H30N) it's very possible that the H30N/L also do only 2.4x on this media.
maybe a firmware update will help out, but if it's a chipset issue it might be that there's no help, only to use 8x rated Verbatim DVD+R DL.
