I am not saying that DVD-R media is bad, what I am saying is that the Liteon drives do not do real well with this type of media. With bit setting you can overcome any limitations that DVD players have playing back the media. I also think PS2s will be ok if you Bitset.
thank you for your help, and could you please explain what bitsetting is? or give me a link i could learn more about it?
if it is what im thinking, do u bitset according to different players or something? and if thats the case, if a bit set fo rone player, and buya new player later would it not work as well? thanks again
Bit setting is done for one reason, to trick a DVD player into thinking the DVD being played is a pressed DVD (DVD-ROM). This enables any home player or other DVD device to be able to play back a DVD when it could not before. It is only needed for DVD+R disks. You would never have to buy a new player as this makes the disk more compatable not less.
The problem is not an issue of format superiority. It’s a simple matter of age. The plus format is much newer than the dash format, which means that older devices will recognize dash but not plus. Dash supporters like to point to compatibility as the key advantage of dash, but that advantage is really an accident of this age issue (the dash format was never designed to be more compatible or anything of that sort), and speaks to nothing about the dash format (which is actually technically inferior, which is why, on average, plus tends to burn better, not just on LiteOn, but on other drives as well).
On this note, I fully expect +R DL to be more “compatible” than -R DL for the same reasons why -R is currently more “compatible” than +R.
And then there are the devices that explicitly try to detect +R and block them in order to thwart copy protection, like PS2.
hey code 65536 i updated my 812s to 832s but i think i did something wrong, i clicked on the button apply recommended DVD media tweaks in OP and enable cross-flashing and choose the VSOA patch from you website. By clicking on the button ‘apply…’ was that wrong? I can not test any DL, because not available here in belgium ( i could not fing any shop with it). If i did wrong, what should i do to fix it.
