How do I set the booktype in DVD Decrypter?

I have access to a LG GSA-4160B DVD Burner…I tried setting the book type for a DVD+R media in DVD Decrypter, but when I select LG and try to set the book type, it fails !! How do I successfully set the booktype for a DVD+R to DVD-ROM ??

secondly, I have seen people with a Sony DVD Burner, set the book type, by selecting Lite-On, instead of Sony. Why is this ?

You cannot! No LG support for BS!


#3

Just to answer your 2nd question , many of the Sony DVD burners are in fact rebadged Liteons. That’s why that works.


#4

Because your Lg maybe doesn’t support bitsetting. 2nd most sonys are rebadged, it means with other words you’ve a Liteon with a sony label on it.

And the sony pricetag to boot :wink:


#6

And the crappy sony support to deal with :wink:


#7

Holy $hit!
Sony provide support?
I thought it was just wishful thinking.

wow,…so many replies, thanx guys :slight_smile:

okie, just a little question…if LG doesnt support BS…then how come DVD Decrypter has a tab for LG ??

IIRC LG 4160B uses the [I]TDK[/I] chipset =[I]no bitsetting[/I].
The newer LG drives (4163B, 4167B) use [I]Renesas[/I] chipset =[I]bitsetting[/I]. That might be “the reason”.

Hope LG gurus will correct me if I’m wrong. :wink:

[I]Edit,[/I] linky

Looking at videohelp it should be renesas here


#11

Then either cdrinfo or videohelp is wrong… I think the later. :wink:


#12

I think videohelp is wrong, the TDK chipset is more logical to me regarding bitsetting in this case. But otherwise wouldn’t the R in front of the serial stand for renesas?!


#13

[I]Correction.[/I]
Checking out LG FAQ it seems 4160B also uses a Renesas chip. Nevertheless, the main answer still stands the same; this drive doesn’t support bitsetting.

The interesting thing is, its external counterpart (5160D) supports bitsetting on +R and +R9. :confused:

ok, well, the other writer that i have access to is the Sony 810A (i think - but its definitely a newer Sony writer)…does this support bitsetting ?

and if it does, which company do i select to apply it ?


#15

hellooooooooooo…:slight_smile:


#16

Yes with this you can change booktype, it’s a rebadged BenQ.
