Summary: Should I untick “Auto ‘Change Book Type’ (*)” in ImgBurn?
I am trying to replace my damaged original navigation DVD without paying a lot of money to the dealer. To be honest, the time and effort to get this far, I almost wish I had just splashed the cash. However, not being one to be beaten I am progressing.
I’ve now flashed my DVD drive with retail firmware, replacing the OEM version, (post # 6) thus ImgBurn (126.96.36.199) allows me to change the book type to DVD-ROM which is required as I have to use DVD+R DL discs, but the sat nav device needs / expects DVD-ROM.
The image file came with .IMG and .MDS files. From what I have read, I understand the MDS file is a “settings” file for ImgBurn and should set everything according to how the disc should be burned, taken from how it was copied.
In ImgBurn, under Write Mode, I set the Book Type to DVD-ROM and burned the disc. The log showed it setting the BookType to DVD-ROM, However, once the disc was burned, in Read Mode, Under “Physical Format Information (ADIP -LO)” the Book Type is still DVD+R DL.
Under Tools --> Settings --> Write --> Page 1, there is the option “Auto ‘Change Book Type’ (*)” that is ticked.
My thought is that this enabled setting is overwriting the Book Type. Before I burn yet another Toaster, should I untick this setting?
To cut a long story short, I downgraded the sat nav firmware for another purpose, however, on inserting my copied disc, the firmware is upgraded again, so I know it is reading the disc for the firmware upgrade, just not for the navigation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
