Change Book Type gives Invalid Command Operation Code

Recommended Posts

Ok, I've read the guides, I've looked through the FAQs and I've looked through the forums, including cdfreaks.com. I won't say it was wasted time since I'm new to this stuff and I'm learning a lot from you all, but I have wasted several DVD+R discs and to quote Bono (the U2 lead, not Sonny), "I still haven't found what I'm looking for"

 

Here's the deal:

 

I'm trying to burn some DVD's that will play on my DVD players around the house. I haven't done this in a while, but in the past, on a differnt PC I was able to do this. On my new PC (Dell Optiplex 745) I haven't had much success. According to my research on this site my DVD Drive is an LG, but whenever I try to change the Book Type, I get an Invalid Command Operation Code. Below is my current log file and what ImgBurn reports for this device:

from what I can understand you trying to set book type for a DVD+R or R/W but it shows your using a CD-RW profile so not sure why that is.

Sorry, I had the wrong disk in there. Here is the info for the DVD+R. It still gives the same error, but I see it does say that it is already a book type of CD+R, so I guess I don't need to pursue that issue. From what I understand, if the book type is CD+R, it should play on most DVD players, correct?

book type mainly used to set DVD-ROM on DVD+R RW media to make it compatible with dvd player that read the booktype. If you set the book type on a DVD+R you can't change it as it write once media for that use.
