I flashed my 3500 with the new 2F9 firmware, and changed the default booktype for +RW to -ROM with DVDInfoPro.
Both DVDInfoPro, WinBTypeV2 and NECWinFlash confirm that the default booktype for the drive is set to -ROM.
However, when I do a full format at the lowest speed, de booktype for my +RW media is still +RW.
As you can read here
, I'm not the only one with this problem.
Some have successfully burned a +RW with a -ROM booktype, but not all.
Maybe the booktype is only changed on NEW not used +RW media?
Lite-on and BenQ have a utility to set a booktype for already burned +RW's. Isn't that a good idea for NEC?
