Noob Help!

Hi,

 

Totally new to imgburn and quickly found out that my Dell laptop's internal DVD drive won't support booktyping to DVD-ROM on Verbatim 2.4x DVD-DL media. I have a specific project that requires booktyping, and thus want to buy an external DVD drive that fits this need.

 

However, I have no idea what's best to buy in terms of ease of use, price, quality, etc.

 

Any quick suggestions on what to buy? I'd ideally like a cheap USB drive.

 

Thanks!

If you tried to burn those DVD +R DL media, are you sure that they are not book typed by "default" by the burner already?

 

Insert such a burned disc in the drive and select Read mode - in the right panel window you should see some info if or not it's book typed.

Yeah, 100% sure it didn't booktype automatically. The drive I have doesn't support it, and there doesn't seem to be crossflash available.

 

Just put a failed attempt burned disc in, and it says "Booktype: DVD+R DL" as well.

 

Edit: drive that won't work is a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-D633A D500 (ATA) if that's at all useful.
