Thank you for providing the MediaCodeSpeedEdit program.
I am sorry for stealing your time. I did not read the complete thread.
So maybe the answer to my question was answered before.
But this is not the question.
Here it comes:
What are these Media descriptors good for?
I am a user of your software for years and I patched DVD burner firmwares
only by editing available DVD+/-R manufacturer entries in the manufacturer list.
Maybe my DVD burner supports these AML DVD+R media only:
AML 001-000 4x
AML 002-000 8x
I cannot change the speed factors of any entry with the software.
So if I purchase AML-003 media with 16x writing speed I can only edit an entry of a different manufacturer if I want to burn with 16x speed which I actually do not do.
Is this no problem?
Are the media descriptors only stupid text strings? There are no different writing strategies for different manufacturers programmed in form of tables or whatever inside media burners?
My burner always welcomes if there is at least any firmware entry matching the used blank DVD. So using DVD+R9 disks this way I can burn with 1x or 2.4x speed. Without matching firmware entry I cannot burn those media.
Check amazon or other DVD dealers for the user comments.
The users try multiple burning programs and cannot burn correctly with their notebook or desktop DVD burners.
Reason: The DVD media are not supported by the burner firmware. The users then blame the blank DVDs.
But the DVDs are perfect.
I usually try to buy only burners supported by MediaCodeSpeedEdit.
This way my DVDs are burnt to almost 100%.
The notebook burners are a problem only. A lot of them are not supported.
To repeat my question:
Are the DVD media descriptors basically just stupid text strings?
