    How to set Book Type DVD ROM

    No, this was what was displayed upon inserting a blank disk. According to the marketing info on this PC it supports double layer DVDs, although it doesn't call out +Rs explicitly. But the info on the drive from imgBurn says it does support +Rs.

    How to set Book Type DVD ROM

    Does 2.4x rated media work more reliably than 8x rated media? The Memorex (Ritek) media I have is rated 8x, but I burned at 2.4x.

    How to set Book Type DVD ROM

    Hi Cynthia, I do have 'Auto Change Book Type' option enabled in the Write tab in the settings. I switched to 'Write' mode, and now I see the Tools -> Drive -> Change Book Type... menu (perhaps only after media was inserted). Invoking that it asks for the REAL drive type. Your post suggests that might be LG, however, this is an HP branded laptop. I went ahead and selected LG and for popup Change For I selected "Drive (for DVD+R DL media)" but then it says under current setting "Unknown (FAILED!)" and "Reason: Invalid Command Operation Code". Do I need to do "Advanced" settings? I do notice that after inserting Memorex +R DL media that "Book Type: DVD ROM" appears on the right hand side which is fully quoted at the bottom of this post. I thought maybe a firmware update might help and ran menu item Tools -> Drive -> Check For Firmware Updates... but it states current firmware rev is HQ04 and on OK goes to an empty web page: http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_result.php?kaj=1&...isces=GMA-4082N How do I determine whether I have an older writer that has problems with OPC? The write I originally did worked fine for the verify, it just fails when inserted into the car's navigation DVD player.

    How to set Book Type DVD ROM

    Hello, I have a drive recognized as: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N by imgBurn. I need to turn on book type of DVD-ROM in order to burn a backup of my Toyota navigation DVD. Looking at other posts, the menu item they refer to is not present in v2.4.2.0. Under Tools menu there is no Device menu from which to set the book type. In the Tools -> Settings I see a tab for Device, but do not see any book type option there. BTW, is 'Perform OPC before write' suggested enabled for burning a navigation DVD, it is not on by default? Thanks. -William
