I just flashed my DVR-112D with this firmware “A12J_1.24_Firmware_With_Bitsetting_And_Labelflash” and when I burn an ISO which is a copy of a DVD movie, the disc is still DVD+RW as reported by Nero’s CD/DVD Speed. And I can’t play it in my standalone dvd player as a result.
What is wrong? I tried burning it with Alcohol 120% and Nero…and you can’t change the booktype in Nero or Alcohol (as I normally would with other dvd writers) since this is supposed to be automatic.
I’m guessing the firmware’s bitsetting only works for DVD+R and DVD+R DL but not DVD+RW. Is there a firmware that will work with DVD+RW’s for the DVR-112D?
If I burn the same ISO to the same disc but using my Samsung SH-S182D drive (on same pc) then Nero automatically tells me it’s writing it as booktype DVD-ROM.
Since I only bought the drive yesterday, I think I’ll have to return it and maybe I’ll try the Pioner DVR-212…though I’m guessing the bitsetting problem will be on that one too. I must have DVD-ROM capability…and while I may have it on my Samsung, I won’t have it if the Samsung dies.
