i bought the multi-format-DVD/CD writer from LG, and i am very
happy with it NOW that i found out the only “problem” it has,
was not a problem with the writer, but rather with my s.a. DVD-Player.
At first i only had rw-media, as i wanted to try out and get used
to DVD-writing and -authoring and don’t produce lots of toasters.
The written DVDs worked fine on my PC and on anotherone with
a regular DVD-Rom drive, so far - so good. Then i tried them in
my fathers DVD-player and nothing worked. The player did all kinds
of wierd stuff as soon as i inserted one of my DVDs. Either it said
“No Disc” or it recocnized a CD-Audio or it wouldn’t stop trying to find something.
Well, enough blahblah, a little later i figured the player had no problems reading DVD-/+R media from my writer.
Even later i figured there is a way to trick the player to read RW-media :
Bitsetting the DVD-/+RW to -/+R or even -ROM.
The thing is, is it possible with the LG GSA 4040B, and where do i
get a tool for that ? I searched the net, but only found vendor-specific
tools that wouldn’t work with my writer.
Thanks in advance for any help.
