Hey guys, I have a NEC ND-3520AW and trying to write to a Sony DVD+R-DL whose media ID is MBIPG101/R10.

Here is the mediainfo output:


$ sudo dvd+rw-mediainfo /dev/scd0

when i attempt to write to it i get the following:

The current disctype is DVD+R-DL
The current booktype is DVD+R-DL
Permanent booktype for DVD+R is DVD+R
Permanent booktype for DVD+RW is DVD+RW
Permanent booktype for DVD+R-DL is DVD+R-DL
You have 498 changes left to change the permanent booktype settings

i’ve recently updated it via:


sudo ./necflash -flash 307_orig.bin /dev/scd0

im guessing that i need to change the media id so that growisofs can burn. does that sound right? and can anyone tell me how i find the supported media ids for my drive and how i change it?

It would be easier to use different DL media. The only type we recommend is sold under the Verbatim brand. And for a burner this old, I would suggest using the slower speed 2.4x-6x Verbatim with the MKM001 mid code.


#3

SONY DVD+R DL 2.4x made in Singapore are MKM001 and have a very good quality. <-- recomended

SONY DVD+R DL 2.4x made in Taiwan are RITEK D01 and are very bad.

These Sony DL made by Moser Baer India are probably not that great either. MBI has made good discs, and has made some of Verbatim’s discs with decent quality, but the quality of its own design for DL discs has yet to be proven as good with a wide range of drives.

I’d say that you’d have to either
a) edit the firmware for the drive to include that media ID or give that media a better write strategy, then flash the edited firmware (using software that probably works best, if not only, in Windows);

b) just go for the Verbatim 2.4x made in Singapore media (probably your best bet).

or
c) get a newer drive that can handle the Moser Baer India DL media better.
