I've been searching for the last 4 hours for an answer to my question. But I'll show my noobiness, stop wasting time and come here to get it straight.
Actually, I thought I read the answer, as "yes," on the forum a couple of years ago, but can't find that.
question: Is it possible through firmware to do bitsetting to DVD+R media, so a DVD burner will treat as if it is DVD+RW?
I read that I can change a DVD+R/RW to DVD-ROM, but I need some RW media and this would be an inexpensive way to do it.
I have a Lite on Drive (LH-20A1H) & also a NEC 2500A (that's the one I was going to do an update on).
I ran DVDbitsetter and it doesn't get further than telling me the name of the drive.
Although the drive is identified correctly, when I try to get info on it and the media in it, the program says it can't find anything and the drive must either be a Sony or RPC-1. Neither of which are true. It's a NEC and RPC-2, region 1.
Is there firmware that will help?
Or do I need to go to mertline or staples, OD, and buy those expensive DVD+RWs?
