Book-type with CloneDVD

CloneDVD Version 2.4.5.4:

DVD+R DL discs now become type DVD-ROM on NEC (and compatible) writers to improve compatibility

Will this option become avalible for regular DVD burners, such as the new Nero 6.3.1.25 has done? I have read that with Nero you can change the Book type with the Plextor 712 to DVD-ROM.

I thought I read this somewhere already but cannot find the information.

BTW,

Will CloneDVD show the burn speed in a new version soon?

Booktype: I don’t like the idea, that applications change the booktype. Sometimes the booktype is stored in flash memory, which has limited changes.
I prefer a tool provided by the manufacturer.

Burn speed: Not soon.

I prefer a tool provided by the manufacturer.

I understand that, I wish Plextor would put it in PlexTools, hopefully in a new update

Booktype: I don’t like the idea, that applications change the booktype.

Isn’t this more then just the application doing this? it only works with certain drives and not all. It will work with the 712 but not the 708

BTW,

I just came across a post from LIGHTNING UK(Author of DVD Decrypter)

There is no ‘trick’ here, I guess Plextor just eventually added support for it.

Anyway, I’ve added it to DVD Decrypter now too - having tested my code a few times!

he also stated

Software cannot support what the hardware itself does not!

Plextor added the commands to the 712’s firmware

I have Nero but I just don’t want to use it, DIE HARD CLONE FAN!!!

Well Ollie, Plextor has saved you the trouble of adding it for Plextor. Using Plextools 2.17, it will set the Book-Type to ROM with the 712A and the 708A(firmware 1.08)


Nice! :slight_smile:
