Can anyone tell me the advantage of being able to set backups to “DVD-ROM” as now able in the lastest versions?

Hi sneer,

I pasted this from one of my post 4 days ago

Booktype refers to identifying a dvd as a dvd+R (+RW, +R DL), dvd-R (-RW, -R DL) or dvd-ROM and is important re: compatibility, esp. with standalone players. You can change +R media to dvd-ROM in order to increase compatibilty. You cannot change -R media. +R must be set prior to burning, +RW can be done before or after.
I usually opt to change +R to ROM, I don’t have any problems playing +R, however, I don’t see any disadvantage to changing it.

Hope this helps,
