I am just curious if anyone has tried these dual layer discs on standalone dvd players and if they played fine??

Thanks.

Note: There doesn't seem to be a BookType setting for DVD-ROM DL with current firmware revision.

I wonder if Nero gives the option to bitset?

If you are anxious to try burning to a DL disk, here's how you can get one:

Go to this link: http://www.supermediastore.com/verbatim-dvd-plus-r-dual-double-layer-solution-kit.html

They have a bundle for $25 that includes ONE DVD+R DL disk 2.4x and eight DVD+R 8X disks and one DVD+RW 4X disk.

-- droxford
You can also buy this DL solution-kit in the US at Best Buy stores & Bestbuy.com shipped free for $29.99.
It seem that the only place in the US that you can buy single DL disc is at sonystyle.com for $14.99 per disc Here's a link

It would seem there is now nec program that will do bitsetting just for DL media on fw 2.15 or later.


cafu said

I have 2510A and I just e-mailed NEC support asking them If they have plans on having support for bitsetting in future firmware upgrades for 2510A.
Got a reply where they sent me a bitsetting tool (only for DL)

This might work with Nero 17

Interesting information, NEC said to me they didn't plan to support BookType since its illegal to the DVD Forum standards, here is the link for the utility, Kogos might want to try it : http://home.c2i.net/kneipp/WinBType.zip

I have feeling nec had to allow DL bitsetting or their DL drive would not be compatible with whole lot of other drives. you notice the program only sets DL not SL

Good news, Nicw will add the function to change the booktype for DL media up to 255 times (who needs 255 times anyway) with the upcoming v3 beta version, probably released later today, good work nicw!

I will also re-ask NEC about the utility and the DL DVD-ROM booktype utility...It seems the firmware has the command, just need to correct "order" to enable it...

So, forgive me if this was already stated somewhere in this massive conversation, the 2500 is virtually the same as the 2510A, but NEC simply upgraded the firmware to add DL support?

I can get the 2500 $20 cheaper, and I'm on a student's budget, so I'm going to buy that instead? Does this sound like a plan?

Thanks,
Joe
