Worked with disc provided.. sort of8/4/2012
I use Sony's PlayMemories to burn video from my HD camcorder. The drive comes with a verbatim BD-R disc included but the manual recommends Sony and Panasonic BD-R discs. It burned the first time with the disc provided and played in my Sony blu-ray player. It would not play in my LG blu-ray player. It does NOT work with BD-R LTH type discs. It throws an error and I don't see a firmware upgrade. Installed eSATA cable to make through put faster.
