Bitsetting and compatibility

Hi all,

I tried bit-setting a “plus” disc with imgburn while I recorded something I made with DVD-Lab Studio. It greatly improved compatibility with the players I happen to have in my house.

How do I bit-set a virgin DVD+RW? What do DVD recorders do to prepare a virgin disc? Whatever they do, I don’t think they bit-set.

Do I need to put it in the computer and record something to do bit-setting, and THEN put it in the set-top DVD recorder and delete the files? Can I even delete stuff on a “plus” RW?

Any thoughts?

(I bought some “dash” RW which of course cannot be bit-set. I guess I can still use those for PC backups. I’ll get some “plus” RW tomorrow.)
