This is a very good question. But sadly i dont own another desktop as it was recently sold to pay for upgrades for this system.
BUT DO NOT FEAR !!! I HAVE SUCCESS
After flashing to codekings RPC1 firmware, i also mentioned in a earlier post that i was in the process of upgrading my nero. I downloaded 178MB update for nero 7.
I went back to the nero cd speed option of book-type and the same greyed out sections. So i opend nero burning rom and selected the drive. This time the option was available and i was able to change it to rom.
I then opened IMGBURN and proceeded to booktpye options. I pressed advanced and selected Samsung and entered DRU 830a in the space. When i opened the Samsung tab and selected to book-type +R media it did not say the usual " NOT SUPPORTED". It stated unknown !!. So i proceeded to change the booktype and it said successful.
I then kept IMGBURN open and burned a DVD in nero cd speed for a test. And by god it came out DVD ROM !!!
Just need to test this and confirm this will work with burning apps and programs. But the initial problem has been worked around.
Many thanks to all that gave input and keept the idea alive as prosistence found a way.
I guess updating my Nero may have update the ASPI driver ?? this could have helped. ??? Any comment welcome.
