I’m new to DVD writing and thought I’d take care of a bunch of stuff all at once.
I just bought a LiteOn LDW-851s (it was acutally a Pacific Digital 8x ± RW for just $69 no rebates needed). I have been very happy with it and evidently it is a pretty popular drive. A friend suggested updating the firmware and I have seen many posted suggesting this as well. Most have said to download the new version and edit as necessary and some suggest a firmware made by the “codeguys” and just install it as is. but I can’t seem to find the actual file. Where is the actual file? How do I install it?
Also I have an XBOX with a Samsung drive. I have burned a few -R discs with no problems. However I just purchased a 25pk of +R and noticed several posts about “bitsetting” and “booktyping” to be able to use them on the XBOX. I am using Nero Ultra 18.104.22.168. When I launch, it asks what type of DVD to burn, Options are:
and i’m not sure which one to use. I have been using DVD-ROM(ISO) for the -R media, but +R burned like this are not read. What do I need to do to make the +R acceptable?
I know there are simple answers to both of these questions, and I have searched but there is too much information available about both with no definite how to. So, any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
