Ok, I just installed it...It came with a DVD+RW which unfortunately isn't compatible with my DVD player. It writes DVD+RW at 2.4X. I made a back up of all my documents onto the DVD+RW. It turns out that the LiteOn is in fact a Sony DRU500A(X) (the A and AX are the same drive but with different firmware). The two drives are identical so if you like the DRU500A(X) you'll like the LiteON. Everything is as I'd expect it...so far. I have a copy of DVD X Copy Xpress (converts DVD9 movie to always fit on DVD5 media) so I can't wait to buy a few DVD-Rs or DVD+Rs and "backup" DVD movies. :wink:
