I have a problem with my NEC 5170A dvd burner.
I want to set the booktype of the burner to DVD-rom for DVD+R with imgburn.
It’s possible to change the booktype for DVD +R DL to DVD-rom, but somehow it doesn’t support changing the booktype of the normal DVD+R.
I tried to update the firmware of the burner with official firmware supplied, but it doesn’t work:
So I looked on this website and came across a way to flash the drive with custom firmware from liggy and dee that made it possible to change the booktype for DVD+R as well.
I downloaded the firmwarefile here:
and tried to use binflash to flash the drive. But when I let binflash scan for drives, it doesn’t find any… I tried booting my pc in safe mode, but this didn’t have any effect. Neither did downloading the DOS version of binflash and scanning.
Can anyone please help me?
