i think the serial is burned in the Flash Eprom in an area where the flashing Firmware arent. Is ist possible to delete the serial with a tool or other way ?
now why would you need to delete the serial number?? :rolleyes:
Put on your nefarious thinking cap for a second:
Perhaps he wants to do a "local store RMA" and switching the labels won't be the complete solution. Switching labels would be necessary if you've cut a UPC label out of your current box.
Perhaps he wants to switch drives with a buddy without the person knowing?
Granted, there is likely no legitimate purpose for doing this...
my question was a rhetorical one, but thanks for the effort
Ok, I would've picked that up if you had a winking emoticon, but the one with "wide eyed wonderment" made me think you were looking for an actual reason....
that wide eyed wonderment is actually (rolleyes)
The plextor also stamps all the DVD-R discs (and maybe others?) with the drives serial number.
So in theory, any leaked discs could get traced back to you.
Recording Management Area Information:SONY 2004042000052150SONY DW-D18A
DVD-R disc burned with Lite-On 812S@832S. DW-D18A (SONY ID? )
Is this really a function of the drive itself or is it done by the burning software (see for example the "extra lables" in Neros "Title" setup)?
That's why never register your dvd burners!
where would one fine the burner info on burned DVD? i've never seen it reported in any software.
lol zevia, now why would you have to be worried
LOL, I'm not worried... since I use DVD+R, not DVD-R like Linghtning said
So the very simplest solution would be to use DVD+R.
forgot to respond this one...
On the outside/top part where you use to label it with Sharpie... you need to wipe it with lemon and blow it warm to reveal the numbers...
[sorry, I just watched National Treasure] :bigsmile:
haha, that's what i thought.
can someone show me a screenshot of the burner info being displayed? i can't see it in PT, Decrypter, NERO or anything else.
For your eyes only!
thx! my -R test discs don't show that at all
Anytime! Burned with Lite-On 812@832.Maybe Plextor drives don't stamp DVD-R's with their serials really?
well, i initially looked at the -R test disc in my Samsung DVD-ROM which didn't show anything. now i'm looking at it in one of my PX716s and it shows the brand and model # of the burner but no serial number.
