Big Problem with DVDFab with Dual Layer DVDs

I am having a serious compatibility issue burning DVD+R DL Verbatim discs using DVDFab. It is a real hit and miss deal as to which DVD player they will work in and which ones cannot read them.

I discovered a couple of days ago, however, that if I use burning software that forces the +R media to use the DVD-ROM BookType, then they work in every player I have tried.

Is there a way to make either DVDFab Express or DVDFab Gold force the burner into the DVD-ROM BookType mode prior to burning the dual layer DVD?

Thanks!

Hi Toonces,

We will provide booktype setting feature in recent update.

That would be excellent! It is the ONLY weakness I have discovered in your software… :bigsmile:

Thanks again!

Could you elaborate on how book type works and its signifigance?

Hi krontab and welcome to cdfreaks,

Wow…this is a really old thread…
Anyway, bitsetting or booktype refers to the book type field found in the lead-in section of a dvd disc. Here’s a really good thread by blutach on the subject:
