I was reading a review of a drive on CDfreaks, and was wondering what this is all about:
The Lite-On SHM-165P6S supports Bitsetting, and will as default write DVD+R DL media with DVD-ROM BookType.
Is book type something that helps a set top home dvd player to play discs correctly…? What’s it mean when a dvd+R DL is written as a dvd-rom ? I mean, what’s the benefit ?
Do you want a burner that sets the book type for each diff type of disc? I use dvd-r & dvd+r (whatever’s on sale). Only use dvd-RWs for data backup. I sometimes use DL disks also, for movie backups.
