I have a suggestion related to DVDInfoPro's Booktype selection functionality.
Currently DVDInfoPro allows to bitset DVD+R(W) as DVD-ROM only while the standard also allows to bitset them as DVD-R(W). But sometimes bitsetting DVD+R(W) as DVD-R(W) is more useful than DVD-ROM.
Here goes an example. I have recently burned a few DVD+R disks for usage with Panasonic RV-31 set top DVD player. The player works with DVD-R(W) just fine, but refuses to play DVD+R(W) media. Changing booktype of "+" media to DVD-ROM makes situation slightly better: the player recognizes the media but has hard time reading it. It usually gives up at least once trying to read the disk content, but succeeds after a few retries (open/close tray). The problem has been solved by bitsetting the disks as DVD-R, the player reads disks burned with this setting without problems. I assume that it uses different laser parameters when dealing with recordable media and DVD-ROM, that's why it recognizes DVD+R disks bitset as DVD-R much better than ones bitset as DVD-ROM.
To bitset the disks AS DVD-R, I have changed the booktype setting of my drive using BinFlashGui
, but it does not support temporary settings. And DVDInfoPro does not recognize the DVD-R bitsetting, it just displays an empty box alongside of DVD+R position.
Taking the above said into account, I suggest to add an ability to select booktypes other than DVD-ROM in DVDInfoPro.
