Hi there,

My Sony Vaio VGC-LS1 machine, whose optical drive is Matshita UJ-846S DVD-RAM .

Its running dual boot with XP MCE & Ubuntu Hardy.

The issue is that I wanna use it just for Ubuntu,but when I try to clean install Ubuntu & there is no roll update 2 for XP MCE.

So fails to read +RW DVDs.

Any solutions for it to read +R & RW with out roll update 2 for XP MCE 2005.

Regards!

Couldn't you just use a plain old dvd-r to install Ubuntu, other wise check the dvd drive's manufacturers web site to see it there is updated firmware for your drive.
