    Hello all,

    I'm planning to do a clean Windows 7 64 install on my precious (now it's still running on Vista 32). I checked the HP site for drivers and noticed that there appears to be a lack of Windows 7 drivers. I would like to know where you guys got your drivers. Can I just use the Vista 64 drivers HP offers on it's site? Or will most drivers be automatically installed with Windows 7? Could someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

    Those darn spots were white and looked like zits on a teenager but there is no sign of them now at all.
    By the way dv7t check out my avatar. My nickname for about 5 years was Papa Smurf. That was about 25 years ago. lol

    Got my BD-R discs today and copied Galapagos successfully at 2x, took about 70 mins to burn 25GB. Very happy.
    Still wish I could find some updated HP firmware though.

    BD-Rs are cheap. BD-REs (re-writable) are more expensive, especially the DL 50GB ones.

    Sweet! 70 minutes is long. The UJ 220 at its speed is stated to burn it in 30-35 minutes. So the updated firmware if you can find it, and it works to that same speed would make it quicker. Thanks for letting us know that and how it worked. If I may ask, how much did you pay for blank discs and how many in each pack?

    Only US $2.5 - $3.5 per single BD-R 25GB (Traxdata, Memorex and Verbatim) in spindles of 5 to 15 pieces. Considering it holds 5 times the capacity of a SL DVD, $2.5 - $3.5 per disk is appropriate for a known brand such as Traxdata or Memorex (Panasonic, Sony and TDK can be more expensive). No-brand BD-Rs are even cheaper in spindles of 20+
