I can comfirm that book type for DVD+R media cannot be set


According to the posted picture (which is the same on my PC ) DVD+R is set by default to DVD-ROM , you just can't chage it to anything else. I can confirm That a Benq DVD+R I burned has a booktype setting of DVD-ROM according to Nero , DVDinfo ,WinBType v2 and binflash 0.95

Strange. Am I the only one, where the DVD+R default booktype is DVD+R when using 2.18 ?

I flashed the 2.16 before flashing 2.18, but that shouldn't make a difference ?

eros, what firmware were you using before you flashed to the most recent 2.18/2.18 SE??? Which one are you using now that has the booktype set to -ROM, SE or non-SE version?

I used 2C8_SE_Ritek_4X_DL before flashing to 2.18 SE . I had the same bitsetting in the previous version.

Erm... Can someone explain what they meant by that? I backed up my firmware and flashed it back already and it worked fine...

Are you sure about that? This whole bitsetting/booktype setting thing is pretty new to me. I thought if a setting couldn't be changed, its default was whatever the media format was. In this case, DVD+R media burned would have its booktype set to DVD+R?

Yes, it even includes my firmware so if I lost it, I can download from this site hehe. Well its cool, a lot of FW on one place. But keep in mind he collects them from forums, so I am more grateful to Emperor and his friends for firmwares. Thanks!

Edit: WOW! I just checked new page and its the best firmware reference page you can get for NEC. Very good work!
