    the model bought was unit only without frills
    plugged it in and win 7 did the drivers installation and under hardware it was listed along with the previous lg burner that I had removed
    can't find a way of checking current firmware
    perhaps you can guide me...?
    BDR-207DBK Firmware v1.21 off pioneer website was the version tried to install;
    "target not found" flashed in a black background box
    no update! nothing recognised
    disappointment reigns as I thought I had a machine that could burn anything!

    ...then you have NO 207DBK and chosen the wrong update too!

    I also suspect you are using mediocre crap media?!?

    What are they??

    Instructions on finding firmware version:

    If you have Nero installed (we don't recommend using it for burning, but that's another story) you can use Info Tool to get this information.

    I've seen that TDK uses Ritek to make their BD media, so they probably use only cheap manufacturers for their DVDs too. In the past Japanese TDK DVDs were made by Taiyo Yuden but I doubt that has been true for some years now.

    The only reliable media manufacturers any more are Verbatim (avoid the cheap Life series, but all other types including DataLifePlus are fine) and Taiyo Yuden.

    ImgBurn may also be able to tell you the firmware version of your burner. Go into Tools->Drive->Capabilities.

    TDK DVDs have been garbage for years in Europe.
