I have this crapy unit in my system and read a lot on the net about its poor performance but thought it was a bit exaggerated and didn't take the bad remarks for granted. Until I started using it more. I don't have any complaints so far regarding its reading performance, but I do have (a lot) objections when it comes to writing. First, it won't erase any cdr-rw or dvd-rw, and I have several different speeds and different brand media and I tried few cd burning apps. But, I can live with that. Second, it won't write anything in DAO mode. What the ...? I certainly cannot live, I mean write, without that. I looked for firmware update, but there isn't a single reference for this particular unit. So, I ask, mods preferably, am I entitled to the unit repair/replacements as it obviously doesn't work as it should.

i think there is a general consensus over the web that the Mat**bleep**a drive in Lenovo 3000 have higher rate of failure or poorer performance than other comparable products in the Lenovo product line.
