I did a search on this here, and found some topics on bitsetting and CloneDVD, most recently from back in Feb., so thought I’d ask about the newest version, which I have installed and burned a few disks with.
I used my LG GSA-4163, burning to Verbatim +R (MID: MCC 003). As I recall, the LG only holds its bitsetting temporarily, so I used CD Speed to change DVD +R to DVD-ROM. The first disk I burned w/CloneDVD came out as a +R, so I must have inadvertantly ejected or rebooted between when I bitset the drive and burned the disk–this is how I remembered that the LG only holds bitsetting temporarily. :o
Anyway, the second disk I burned, I again changed the +R to ROM using CD Speed, and just to make sure I left CD Speed running while I burned the disk. This time it came out ROM, so that’s good; first time I must have goofed. But basically I was wondering, does the latest version of CloneDVD itself support bitsetting from +R to ROM? I couldn’t find a setting change anywhere, either in Preferences or by right-clicking all over the place, nor in any FAQs or the manuals. Is there someplace in CloneDVD I can force it to set ROM for single-layer +R disks? I know that Olli said it always tries to set ROM for +R dual layer, but I’m also interested in single layer. (I tend not to think about bitsetting, as I used to use Shrink, and it always automatically bitset to ROM if the drive allowed it.)
