Yes the 104/A04 drives seem to be running into nothing but trouble now and the firmware updates don't seem to help one bit either. That was one of the reasons why I suggested getting the 106 instead.

just got the 106 a week ago and burns great. I would suggest this model. Also i have a version 7 and it plays dvd+/-/-rw's. I'm in canada and picked it up for 500.00 with a 3 year warranty. Futureshop!!!

Futureshop still exists? Went out of business in my area 4 or 5 years ago. Anyway $500 Canadian is way too expensive for that drive. My guess is that you got the fully loaded A06 (since it's the retail version). You can pick up the 106 for under $200 USD if you know where to look on the net.

$100? Ouch. I would've saved the money and simply taken my chances. The original warranty is good for a year, and a year from now they will have faster burners that are even cheaper. So even if your burner falls apart 15 months down the road you will be able to find a better one for alot less. I wouldn't want a 4x burner as a replacement 2-3 years down the road. Chances are you will still have to pay some kind of a deductible on your extended warranty should you need to use it (I'm sure you will find it somewhere in that fine print). I'm sorry but in most cases I have found the extended warranties to be rip offs.

with my warranty it's a striaght exchange type deal. I see what your saying about the new burners coming out in that time frame. I guess i'll have to take the chance with my A06. So far it's great right now.
