yes. other dvds work perfectly, like movies or whatever. nero infotool says the burner can read/write dvd+-r(w). so it should work. i've never handled blank dvds before, but i do know the f**king basics about the hardware-this isn't normal...this booktype you mentioned. im not sure what it is, but pretty positive it wasn't an option in the nero dialogue.
edit...yes, i burned it for real-four times. and probably 1 simulation.
i checked the aluminium coating, definitely wrote something
edit: BTW, nero says the disc is empty, if i try to write something elso to it. doesn't care if multi-single session was selected. it only fails to rewrite the
written disc when i try. even attempted to open the dvd drive in winhex as a
disk, didn't work,
