Well, my suggestion to you is go and get a pioneer 111d if you can and get some verbatim media while you there too, because that combo have very high success rate over another burner or media to use with hitachi drive for boot your legal own backup. Hitachi drive is known to be very picky on certain type of media and burner it take.
If the pioneer 111d and verbatim media won't work for you. Then recheck your flash and make sure you did it right.
Even with pioneer 111d burner and verbatim media some member report they still need to use a certain boot trick to make it work. It vary from drive to drive even there model and make are the same exact.
Good Luck man
