will this util work on blank discs placed in a dvd-rom? as my brother in law only has a dvd-rom drive and my computer with the pioneer a06 is in uk. also is there a list anywhere of which brands are actually ritek g04’s or g03’s.

Yes, it will.

I’m not sure about your 2nd question,
hopefully some1 knows it better or @least [COLOR=blue]this link may come in handy.[/COLOR]
