I'm trying to understand the interaction between the drive firmware and the burning software.
Version 220.127.116.11 of Nero is known to be the last to allow the direct setting of book type. When this was released, neither the 1004 or the 1008 had bitsetting firmware.
So, could Nero set the booktype of a BTC drive directly without the need for any extra firmware support?
If that's the case, then any application can do this, and why does the drive need a bitsetting function in the firmware?
It seems that the conclusions are:
1) 18.104.22.168 Nero CAN'T set the booktype of a BTC drive because it can't interact correctly with the firmware. (I Know there are posts on this forum that say it can).
2) 22.214.171.124 Nero CAN set the booktype of a BTC drive, in which case bitsetting support in the firmware is irrelevant.
