"Does not play back video well."1.0 starson
Summary: Installation of software was very difficult. The bundled software conflicted with the nero burning software that was already on the comuter. I had to re install xp to make the software work. Tech support had me pulling out drives and proving that everything was correctly installed. The bottom line is the drive can not play back video. I was able to burn an mpeg-2 file onto the provided sony disc without any problem. It looks really bad when I play it back on the DRU drive. I tested other DVDs to see how they play back and none of them look good. When I play back on an older drive the burned dvd look fine. It also looks good on a set top dvd player. I guess I could re install the original DVD player and use it for playback. For someone who wants to playback there video on the Sony drive forget it.
