Is there any hacked firmware, wonder software, magical pixie dust or other that makes it possible to produce -rom booktyped dvds with Optorite dd1205? Or is bitsetting just absolutely impossible with said drive?
Impossible. The company is gone, no firmware beyond original releases. Do like I did. Get a new drive. Now that I have a BenQ for scanning, I don't think it was a very good drive at all.
