I bought a LG GSA-5160D,
USB 2.0 und FireWire DVD-Brenner, 16x wr/8x rw/16x r DVD+R, 8x wr/4x rw/16x r DVD-R/RW, 5x wr DVD-RAM, 2,4x wr Double Layer, 2MB Buffer
and successfully changed the booktpye (DVD+R) to DVD-ROM, and it is perfect, now dvd+r can be read in my IBM T20 laptop (very old type DVD-ROM)
but now I have a problem with DVD-R
DVD-R burned by nero 184.108.40.206 can not be read by IBM T20, and combo drive (DVD CD-RW) either
it is very strange, when I use the software copytodvd version3, burned DVD-R can be recognized!
but sometime work sometime not.
my question is:
is it possible to change the booktpye of DVD-R to DVD-ROM?
if not, how to make DVD-R more compatible?
this headache problem only comes when I burn data DVD-R,
if I burn video DVD by copytodvd, it works perfect with DVD-R.
sometimes certain drive read the DVD-R , sometimes not(even combo from compaq laptop can not read DVD-R burned by nero). I only use the same DVD-R disk for all these tests.
so I am sure that my drive should support the media (DVD-R)
it must be software problem rather than hardware (drive and media)
DVD-R burned by nero 220.127.116.11, can not be read,
the same burner, same DVD-R, burned by copytodvd(software), can be read.
when I connected dvd-burner to another computer, this time DVD-R burned by copytodvd can not be read!
it is so strange,
same burner, same DVD-R burned by different computers give differnt compatibility of DVD-R?
thanks a lot!
it seems there is no official software from LG which support booktype change. to change the booktype, nero burning rom seems to be the only choice, is it correct?
i tried to use dvdinfopro, it report: your drive does not support bitsetting.
the same as cd-dvd speed from nero, it reports incompatiblity too.
nero burning rom successfully changed the booktype of dvd+r.
have somebody experience with 5160D?
