A few questions about 832s firmware, reading, bitsetting

#1

I have a sony dw-18u that i have flashed to a 832s using codeguys firmware cg3e. Is this the newest and best firmware for this drive??? Also i have been reading about making it read faster and changing the booktype to dvd-rom. I have had a couple of problems that my discs wont play in some dvd players. Would the dvd-rom booksetting help this??? I have downloaded omnipatcher 1.4.1 and i see where i can change the read speed and enable auto bitsetting. What bitsetting does this do then?? thanks,

CG5G is the newest, get it here: http://s2.youshareit.com/files/a807125fa010ac8f68a2d18baa0b68f2.html

i’ve applied all patches to it, so just download, unpack and flash.


#3

could you tell me the what this firmware does compared to my old firmware?? thanks


#4

also is this the same firmware as codeguys???

Bitset is used for DVD+R/RW/DL only. It will burn your +R as a DVD-ROM giving maximum compatibility with all players (Even drives that normally can’t read DVD+R).

CG5G uses newer quality-writing method. just test it.
