I have a Pioneer BD-ROM BDC-207D 1.00 (SATA) drive in my computer and want to be able to set the book type on the Verbatim +R discs I will be using.  When I go into the Change Book Type screen, it wants me to select a manufacturer (e.g. Plextor, Ricoh, etc).  Pioneer is not one of the manufacturers offered.  I've tried looking online but all I've been able to find is that it is an OEM drive.


Does anyone have any ideas how I should proceed from here?


Thanks in advance...

Well, if it is a BD-ROM, you can't set the book type on a read only (ROM) drive.  It has to be a writer.

You can’t manipulate the booktype setting on pioneer drives. Either they do it automatically or they don’t.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

Thanks for the quick replies.  The Blu-ray portion of the drive is read only, but the DVD/CD portion also writes.
