please can someone clarify for me, I have heard that DVD-R and DVD + R can be read by DVD players and ROMS. So I burn a DVD-R and my normal DVD-ROM can't read it.
Where am I going wrong or have I got it all wrong?
What are you burning with (Drive and Program) and what media (MID code)?
It's A LG GSA-4160B with Nero 184.108.40.206 and teh media is Eperformance 8X DVD+R
where do I see the mid code?
You say that the media is DVD+R.For some older players you must set the booktype. Search for booktype and bitsetting. You may need to use unofficial firmware to do so.
how do I find these unofficial firmwares?
I see my drive does officially not suport this
Use the search function, there are probably 100 posts of the subject you ask.There might also be a forum specifically for the brand you have.
I say you got an answer to the bitsetting question in the lg forum. As far as the mid code, download this free program.http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com/Insert a disk (blank or one that you have already burned) and it will read the mid code.
