I had 2 questions.
I have a Sony DW-D18A patched with firmware CG3E which makes
it look like a Sony DRU 700A for all the applications like Nero/DVDShrink.
Omnipatcher recognizes this firmware as VS0E patched for a Sony DRU 700A.
I use DVDShrink3.2/Nero to backup my movies onto TY01 DVD+R disks.
I haven’t used Omnipatcher to set the booktype since I thought DVDShrink
has the option to set the disk as DVD-ROM.
but when i use Kprobe on the burnt disk, it still shows up as DVD+R.
So does that mean DVDShrink’s booktype setting does not work…
and I have to use “firmware” (found in the thread that is linked to for LTNFW)
to backup my current firmware, set auto-bitsetting, and then save and reload
my firmware. ?
Also, If i want to upgrade my firmware… I find CG4E in the lite-on forum
as well as VY08 at http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=1817
However, VY08 says it doesn’t find a Sony DRU700A on my PC,
even though the .exe itself says it found “only DRU-700A”.
I presume this is because it still recognises this as a DW-D18A ?
If so, which is the appropriate firmware I should use. I want it to
continue looking like a Sony for Nero and other apps.
