Earlier post by kogos:
"Then i recorded both with NEC 3500A... The discs retained their booktype setting... the first one was DVD-ROM and the second one was DVD+RW... This means that the booktype setting for +RW discs is automatically set to +RW or -ROM, BUT IT IS LEFT UNTOUCHED!!! "
what does this mean? how can it be automatically set and yet still be untouched? that doesn't make sense... either it's set or it isn't, or am i missing something here?
Also, the review states on page 27 that "DVD+RW media is written as DVD-ROM by default, while DVD+R media is written as DVD+R", even though contacting NEC revealed that "The ND-1300A, ND-25x0A and ND-3500A marks DvD+R, DvD+RW, DvD-R and DvD-RW as given, without any booktype changes applied"..
I'm getting confused here
but i'm of course still a noob to all this..
I've got a couple of questions also:
A. Changing the book type for DVD+R SL as shown on page 28 of the review, does that change the book type for DVD+RW also?
B. How does this book type stuff work? I tried changing the SL book type to DVD-ROM using winbtype (using fw 2.F8) and that seems to change the book type setting of the drive, but when is the book type of a disc actually changed? when it is burned? or can the book type of a disc be set without actually burning any content to the disc? (after changing book type to DVD-ROM i tried burning a DVD+RW using Nero, but it was still reported as a DVD+RW media afterwards)..
hope all of this makes sense..
