Book Type Question

Recommended Posts

I am very new at this, so I apologize if what I'm saying sounds stupid. I'm trying to change the Book Type of my DVD+R drive to DVD-Rom, so that I can play the DVDs in a DVD Player that will not take DVD+R/RW. I have an NEC ND-1100A, with firmware 1.93. When I go to the change book type screen and NEC tab, no matter what choice from the pulldown I make, it says "Unknown (FAILED!)" and I can't change the booktype. Is there any way of making this work? Am I doing it wrong?

 

Thanks in advance.

If anything, you'd use the Ricoh tab as that's what old NEC firmwares with booktype setting support used.

 

Failing that, you might find a patched firmware that allows for changing the booktype via the cdfreaks 'nec' forum.

An 1100A bitsetting f/w is available here

patched from the 1300 f/w use at your own risk!

I used that firmware on my old NEC1100 - it worked fine, I seem to remember that drive did not support bitsetting, come to that I don't think the new ND4550 does either !

 

However I removed that drive before Xmas to make way for the new ND4550 :) Liggy & Dee may have FW for the 1100 as well....

"that I don't think the new ND4550 does either !"

 

confirm

 

I can't imagine L&D's not doing it.

 

All my 3550(same hardware) +R are bitsett
