I bought my 4167 a few months ago looking for a drive that would do bitsetting. I saw on a few sites, includeing videohelp.com that it supported bitsetting. So, it wasn’t until after I had ordered it that I found that it only did bitsetting on the +R as DVD-ROM, but NOT the +RW’s. I was rather disappointed with this, but have used it anyway, since it is a very nice drive. It does feel a bit cheap, as some of you have remarked in other threads, but all in all, it has done almost everything I’ve wanted it to do. I emailed LG once, asking about the possibility of getting a firmware upgrade or something that will allow it to do +RW bitsetting, and I got the reply that they would pass it to R&D, because my opinion was important to them, blah, blah, blah…
Anyway, I started wondering, can bitsetting be done for +RW on other drives? I believe so. So if it can, why not this one? Has anyone come up with a “special” firmware for the 4167 that would allow it? I’m not much of a programmer, so I couldn’t even think about trying to write it myself. It would just help an awful lot with my set top DVD player that won’t read (re)writeable DVD’s unless it has the bit set to DVD-ROM. It reads my +R’s fine, but I would like to be able to use my +RW’s so I can see how it looks before I put it onto a +R permanantly.
