I did, and now am beginning to wonder if I did the wrong thing since good 'ol Bill (sic) has decided to opt for supporting the DVD rewritable format that aint supported by my drive (and Toshiba amgonst the others). FYI the Panasonic drvie works with DVD-RAM and DVD-R (non rewritable) discs and Microsoft has decided to support DVD+RW.
I've only just gone and bought the thing and installed it. Wonder if I could go send it back to Ebuyer now??? Like that'll be easy I bet...(TIC)

this has been on the cards for ages now - - out of the 3 formats for DVD, the DVD-R is the less popular.You should still be able to use for your back-up purposes though, even sticking your movie files to - - - just won't be able to play on stand-alone devices.

I do hope they continue to supply media though at a reasonable cost. I want to use it to archive stuff you see as I am a photographer whos recently gone digital, and am using way too many CD's now. The RAM discs i would only use for Backing up things like C drives. I plan to use DVD-r's mostly for my archiving purposes. I hope whatver standard is settled on in future it will read these discs. Its abt time ISO went and settled this one as they did for CD's whichever gets ISO means that'll be supported more permanently.
