So I flashed my 1673S to JS07 (w/ recommended tweaks and 16x reading). I have new DVD+R media finally. I also got the LiteOn BookType setting tool v 1.35.
Question is, I did a query, then changed the type to DVD-ROM, then hit the change button. It said it changed successfully. But there is a Write Now button greyed out – what’s that for? Anyway, after rebooting and requerying, it stays on DVD-ROM so that’s good.
But then in DVD Decrypter, which I use to burn with, when I insert a blank DVD+R (and before I begin the burn) the info area shows under the ADIP that the media code is YUDEN000T02 and the booktype is DVD+R.
If I try to change the book type (little folder icon next to the burn speed) i can pick Lite-On, but then what should I change? Next Write, Current Media DVD+RW, Drive +R/+R DL, Drive +R/+R DL (EEPROM), etc. I have no idea what these mean. I notice that all the Drive ones already show DVD-ROM.
I’m just wondering why DVD Decrypter lists “DVD+R” under the ADIP as the booktype. Am I worrying about nothing? LiteOn’s own booktype tool, whenever I query it, shows DVD-ROM consistently now.
