Book type set failure

Recommended Posts

I have an older stand-alone DVD player which won't play writable DVDs, however, with some research on videohelp.com I found it supposedly will read DVD+R disks if the book type is changed to DVD-ROM. I bought some +Rs, but I couldn't figure out how to change book type in my Nero OEM version (it probably can't), so I tried ImgBurn. I have a NEC 3550A burner and when I tried to change the DVD+R booktype, ImgBurn gave a failure message. Does this mean my burner doesn't support book type changes? ('bet I know the answer to that...) Am I just not meant to get the home video onto DVD!?!

 

I remember seeing a hacked firmware for my burner. How safe is it to use hacked firmware?

Thanks for any words of encouragement you can offer!

I haven't modified the firmware yet, just tried changing DVD+R DL to DVD-ROM since my burner's firmware does allow that (btw changing the Book Type in ImgBurn works just fine if the firmware allows it!). My home video is now on a DVD+R DL, and my DVD player can read it! I'm thrilled!

 

I'm going to have to give the modified firmware a try so I can use single layer DVD+Rs. Hope those work, too.

Thanks for the input!
