Thanks for the response & support.
Iâ€™ve been Booktyping for quite some time (with Sony & Plextor) and the DVD-ROM Booktype option always works in my entry level Denon 1710 player. The DVD-ROM discs also work in my PC. The DVD-RAM setting from DVDClone2 also plays on the Denon but I didnâ€™t expect it to work. What is still a mystery is why the +R media (using DVDClone2â€™s DVD-RAM option) plays when the Denon says it is a â€“R only player.
What really blew me away was when I reread the Denonâ€™s ownerâ€™s manual. It says the following (note that the all caps & exclamation are Denonâ€™s â€“ not mine).
â€œNEVER playback the following discs. Otherwise, malfunction may result!
DVD with Region codes other than 1 or ALL
DVD-ROM for personal computers
CD-ROM for personal computersâ€
The key words are â€œmalfunction may resultâ€. So far, Booktyping has worked very well and so has the DVD-RAM setting in DVDClone2. I wonder if I can feed the Denon anything & everything. Denon seems to be way too conservative.
P. S. Iâ€™ve been looking at Liggy for quite some time as my Booktyping guru said they were a must read. As my other burners support DVD-ROM, Iâ€™m in no rush & I need to get a little more comfortable before I go in a more radical direction.
