  1. Why am I only getting maximum read speed of 6X for the Sony 16X DVD-R media?

  2. Why does Windows 8 still show in log even on Windows 10?

    20:01:48 Found 1 BD-RE!

  3. Why doesn't the Windows 7 built-in isoburn.exe finalize the disc unlike ImgBurn? Isoburn.exe only finalizes the current session after burning the ISO image but leaves the disc open with the last empty session.

  4. Do you have an ETA of when a new version of ImgBurn will be released? Are you planning to drop support for Windows 9x systems since support for Windows 9x has already been discontinued by Microsoft? Windows 9x is not a true 32-bit OS and still contains 16-bit code. Windows 8 will be coming either this or next year.

  5. The drive returns a value when you query it for the current booktype setting.


    I know what 0, 1 and 2 mean, for everything else I call it 'Normal' and stick the value in brackets after it.


    That's why you see 'Normal (3)'.

    What does 0, 1 and 2 mean when queried from the drive? Is 3 an undefined value? 3 is the value stored in eeprom as shipped from the factory. Will reflashing the original stock firmware reset this value back to 3?

  6. It's showing DVD-ROM for everything under Next Write and the firmware is the original Optiarc v2.00 version on the drive but has never been updated because there is no update available on the Optiarc's website for the Optiarc BD-5300S-03. This drive supports bus encryption. The last update is v1.04 but is only for Optiarc BD-5300S-0B without bus encryption.

  7. At what point are you actually checking the booktype values?


    ImgBurn automatically changes the booktype to DVD-ROM when it burns... but it only manipulates the temporary values, the ones saved in EEPROM (which then get applied when the drive is reset) aren't touched.


    Normal and Normal (3) mean the same thing so just ignore the difference there.

    I was checking the temporary values after a power cycle but before burning but the temporary values still show DVD-ROM even though the EEPROM values show Normal.

  8. I have an Optiarc BD-5300S with FW 2.00. Why does my drive keep resetting Book Type to DVD-ROM for DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD+R DL on reboot even after saving the Normal booktype settings to EEPROM. This drive is actually a rebadged Lite-On drive and uses the Lite-On bitsetting commands. The drive came from the factory with booktype settings to Normal (3) in EEPROM but I can only save Normal to EEPROM. Why isn't the drive reading the EEPROM settings and applying it to the current drive settings after reboot?

  9. Why does ImgBurn say failed to change region code if an attempt is made to change the region code without a DVD inserted in the drive? Does ImgBurn give a last chance warning if there is only one change left and does the last chance state require the inserted DVD to be single region in order to make the final permanent change?

  10. I have found http://club.myce.com/f34/dvd-player-wont-read-backup-dvd-227201/ on Google and on Post #6 it says Under the Nu Tech tab, I found this option: Drive (For DVD-R Media - Flash RAM!) that makes the Change button active, but I get this message: "Flash RAM can only be updated a limited number of times. Would you like to continue anyway?". Do Nu Tech drives have a hard limit on how many times the booktype settings can be written to Flash RAM?
