Ah... sorry I had looked at the original post in the forum thread you
gave and saw that his was a Mitsumi. I should have read further to your
post there.

My guess is that the reason that you can't write to DVD's on the 48Xmax
is that the drive is (guessing) an LG GCC-4480B combination
CD-RW/DVD-ROM - meaning that it can read/write CD's, but only *read* DVD's.
