So, you just re-flash each time you want to switch between the requirements? Bitsetting +R versus Unlocked Ripping?
Reading, Writing, Ripping: Explain what you mean by Ripping please.
NOTE: I too bought 35 Verbatim x8 DVD+R discs, before I knew about the bitsetting etc. Will I need both 1.40 and 8.40 as well ???
