Question about Mad Dog Multimedia MegaSTOR (MD-16X3DVD9-8X) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

2 Answers

Is mad dog productions still in business?

They don't answer their phone and seems to be disconnected and their website is down... I have a maddog media, external triple drive burner and the manual says it is lightscribe compatible however, the lightscribe logo is not on the drive and I am wondering if my version is compatible but there is no model or product number to identify the maddog unit located on the unit itself.

    thanks pennypinker (I got that I should rely on a different company). However, since I already own the product, I wonder:

    1. if mad dog is in fact out of business;

    2. if my mad dog multimedia triple format dvd-rw external burner (threw the box away and the setup guide seems generic and there is no product id or number on the unit itself) IS IN FACT compatible with the lightscribe technology eventhough the lightscribe logo is not on the front of the drive as indicated on lightscribe's website.

    But then again, how would you know when I can not even identify the model number of the mad dog burner sitting in front of my face.

    Mixed messages all over the place (wish I would have kept the box).

    found the dive description... hope this is helpful in understanding if my my mad dog is compatible with lightscribe... TSSTCORPCD/DVDW SH-S182D... what do you think... do you think it is compatible with lightscribe?

    I think they have age restrictions on this site :) I did google it and that is how I ended up here. Pretty disappointing experience all around.

No the drive is not lightscribe compatible. You are correct to say it is a samsung drive.

If you want to find out for sure download and run the Nero Info tool program. This will tell you everything you need to know about what your drive can do. It WILL tell you if the drive is Lightscribe.

Its free.

Hope this Helps

Need manual for mad dog multimedia external wiring harnness

Unfortunately, Mad Dog Multimedia went out of business years ago, and no longer provide support services or documentation for any of their products.

Unless you can find another one of these external drive cases on a sale rack somewhere, or being sold used by an individual, your chances of finding the original manual are extremely slim.
