#1

Hello Guys,

After some search I’ve found that my Slimtype driver is made by LiteOn, thus, I’m claming for help here and I kindly ask you to correct me if I’m wrong.

The thing is, I need to burn a DVD+R-DL, but firts I need to change de BookType do DVD-ROM. So far, I was unable to do so.

I’ve used ImgBurn, LiteOn BookType App, Nero CD-DVD Speed but none of them was able to change the Booktype.

After some research, I’ve found a topicsaying that Slimtypes can’t change the BookType. Right now I’m about to give up :frowning:

I just wanna know if there is anything I can do to change the BookType of my drive before goigt to a a more expensive solution. Crossflah maybe? Any Hack?

I Thank in advance for any help I can get.

Below are the spec:

you may need to crossflash your firmware to get it working. even then, i’m not sure as I have not tried it.

My thread: http://club.myce.com/f44/crossflash-slimtype-dvd-ds8a5sh-335240/

the drive is different so don’t flash your firmware with the linked ones.

as for what firmware to flash, i don’t know…
