Does it have Sony "AccuCORE" branding? If so it is made by Sony, if not, likely the media may come from RICOH JPN. The media code can be found in various apps inc. A120%, DVDInfoPro, CDVDInfo etc...
First, I installed DVDInfoPro a couple of days ago and it seemed fine. But now I try to use it and it says that the version is "out of date". I have downloaded and re-installed the thing several times and it keeps saying it is out of date. Then I get some kind of memory error. I think the whole "embedded advert" & "continuous update" thing on this software is one big, steaming-hot dookie.
Second, I downloaded the "CDVDInfo" and installed it, but it wants some kind of "ASPI" layer thing installed and I don't know what ASPI is, why I need it and what bad things might happen if I install it so I am not going to. Plus I don't want to spend the time dicking around with the stupid thing.
Third, I tried to use my installed version of "Alcohol 120%" to find out what the "media code" is and I can't seem to find the function in Alcohol that allows you to do this. The best I can come up with is that it's "Disk Type" is DVD+R (duh) and it's "booktype" is "DVD-ROM" (duh).
So how do you get Alcohol to tell you what the "media type" is ? Or what is wrong with my DVDInfoPro ? Or what is the deal with this CDVD-program and does EVERYBODY have to dick around with it to get it to work, or is it just me ?
I am interested in leaning about "media types", and I liked the DVDInfoPro program but honestly, if they can't do a better job of making their "embedded advert" mechanism allow the program to remain functional, I am sure a "special" version of this program is probably just a few mouse clicks away on P2P.
So what's next on the Learing Parade? I am at a loss for my next step.
