    2.4 dvd+rw firmware update for 4x disks

    They say I need to upgrade my firmware for my memorex 2.4 but when I go to this page it does not work or make sense - http://dvdrwservices.com/productupgr...orecorders.htm

    I tried with IE and it still does not work. any thoughts?

    that dam protowall was blocking it. I have a memorex (just link) dvd+rw/+r anyway.
    Special Note: If you currently own a 2.4x DVD+RW/+R Drive you must upgrade your firmware. 2.4x Write Speed DVD+RW/+R Drives sold by Memorex, Phillips, H/P, Verbatim, Sony and QPS require a drive firmware upgrade. Memorex 4x media is compliant with the new 4x write speed standards. Using the Memorex 4x Write Speed media with a 2.4x write speed DVD+RW/+R drive that has not had a firmware upgrade to support the new 4x write speed standards may result in writing errors, data retrievable failure and damage to the data on this disc. Please make sure to confirm whether your drive supports the new 4x write speed media before use.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
