DVD Identifier 3.3 is released

DVD Identifier 3.3

Changes in latest version (V3.3) - released June 1st, 2004 :

  • Support for double-layer DVD+R (DVD+R DL) and 16x DVD+R discs.
  • Through the use of an internet-updatable database the Manufacturer IDs are now displayed together
    with their full manufacturer name (e.g. ‘MCC’ is now also shown as ‘Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.’).
  • Support for DVD-RAM.
  • Added a warning indicating that 8x DVD-R discs cannot be detected.
    Even though 8x detection code is in-place no drives currently report sufficient ‘write strategy’-information to make this work.
    Note that although 8x detection by analysis of the ‘Media code’-block currently does not work
    you will still get 8x write descriptors if your drive is capable of writing at this speed.
  • Added a ‘More info’-button that will redirect to an on-line resource that contains additional information.
  • Slightly different, more detailed method of reporting the certified recording speeds of DVD+R/+RW discs.
  • The Media ID on DVD+R/+RW discs is now shown as a 3 digit ID (e.g. 03 is now shown as 003)
  • Various small changes, fixes and improvements.

Cool, thanks! :cool:

thinks Wouldn’t this be better off in the media forum?

I agree. :slight_smile:

Moved from the Recording Hardware forum to Media forum. BoSkin, Thanks!

Well, first of all, thanks guys !
And also big thanks fly to Kris, the author of DVD Identifier 3.3, for letting me announce it.

Secondly, Kenny, I do appreciate your help with bringing this post back to Media Forum.
Believe it or not, but that WAS the place where this message originally appeared yesterday at 21:06 CET :

But shortly after that I found it moved and merged with [COLOR=RoyalBlue]DVDInfoPro 3.0 updates
LOL. What can I say here ? God bless this clever person !

And then Phil restored Status Quo :

I have no idea who merged your Dvd Identifier post with the Dvd Info Pro thread
but agree that it was inappropriate and I’ve split it off again.

A food for thoughts to you, gentlemen.[/COLOR] :wink:

Believe it or not, but that WAS the place where this message originally appeared yesterday

:o
My fault. I wasn’t paying attention and thought it was about DVDInfo instead of DVDIdentifier.

Note to self: Drink more caffeine before reading threads in the morning. :wink:

This one is missing in the database.
Sold as “OKANO”, “IFPI GZ12” scratched into the inner ring.
