Guys,

I have a Pioneer writer A12FX/B:

(http://www.pioneer-dvdasia.com/Products_Detail.asp?sn=113&class1=DVD%20RW&ck=DVD%20RW)

Supposed I want to backup a movie using DVD+R DL, could I change the book type to DVD-ROM with this drive so the media will be more compatible to home players?

Doesn’t the drive do that automatically already? I think that bitsetting for DVD+R DL media is already done. DVD+R SL is another matter.

@ keigo_kanzaki,

Your Pioneer A12FX DVD Drive automatically BookType Bit Sets DVD+R DL Media to BookType DVD-ROM during the Burning process. If you are having difficulty with your DVD+R DL Media ‘Compatibility’ it is usually caused by the use of poor quality problematic DVD+R DL Media.

It has been passed numerous times throughout the Forum that the only DL Media that consistently produces quality error free results is Verbatim MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media. ALL other DL Media is considered suspect and should be avoided (not used).

I’d like to know more, if you don’t mind:

  1. does it mean the drive will do the same with DVR+R SL (turning it into DVD-ROM automatically)?

  2. regarding the Verbatim MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media, how can I identifies them easily? From the package’s label?

@ keigo_kanzaki,

By default DVR-A12FX Drive automatically BookType Bit Sets DVD+R DL Media to BookType DVD-ROM during the Burning process. By default DVR-A12FX Drive will not BookType Bit Set DVD+R SL Media to BookType DVD-ROM.

If you desire BookType Bit Setting of DVD+R SL Media to BookType DVD-ROM you will need the use the Media Code Speed Edit tool and patch DVR-A12FX Drive Firmware with the “Enable Bitsetting" patch. Suggest reviewing the “MediaCodeSpeedEdit support for Pioneer DVD-Writers” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/mediacodespeededit-support-pioneer-dvd-writers-153213) posting and visiting the Media Code Speed Edit (http://ala42.cdfreaks.com/MCSE) tool Home Page for detailed information on the use of the Media Code Speed Edit tool.

Yes. They are sold under the VERBATIM brand in most parts of the world, but in Asia and some other places, they would be under the MITSUBISHI brand.
