It is the drive that came with Roxio's version 6 software.
The drive was manufactured around 2002 and I am aware it is an old drive, but it has been in storage unused until a year ago.
It appears Memorex's web site no longer has any valid links to DVD Burners or any firmware for them.
All the links I found on search engines come up with cached or invalid pages, but at one time up until 2007, there was firmware available.
This drive is listed with the following specs.
Memorex dual format DVD recorder
4X DVD+R/-R Write Speed
2.4 DVD+RW/-RW RE-Write Speed
12X DVD-ROM Read Speed
16X CD-R Write Speed
10X CD-RW Write Speed
32X CD-ROM Read Speed
This drive worked OK with the original Roxio software. But seeing as I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7600 build 7600 32 bit I know the software is sort of old.
A lot of times when attempting to burn a system repair disk windows says the drive does not support the media speed. This is when using a blank Sony CD-R disk. I also had problems using Maxell CD-R disks as well, alot of times windows said the disk was NOT formatted.
Any help would be great!
Best regards and thanks in advance!
I am curious if there is still firm-ware available.
I have not yet attempted to open the drive to access the chip, but will do so if requested for the chip number and maker.
