I don't own that drive but I would assume the latter of your post,compatible.HP had the same for the 200i sometime back.Do some searching here as you will find many posts which suggest to back-up at slower speed.Speed Kills

The firmware upgrade on "2nd generation" dvd burners will allow you to burn 4x media safely, but does NOT give you 4x speed. I just upgraded the firmware on my Sony DRU-120A and the Sony website says that this will let me use 4x media in my drive. Be aware that most manufacturers are discontinuing the 2.4x media and thats the reason for the firmware upgrades.
