Patch Utility: "Retain book type after eject" & "Default book type DVD-ROM"?

Patch Utility: “Retain book type after eject” & “Default book type DVD-ROM” ?

18x, 20x and 22x Drives

Retain book type after eject (BS) [COLOR=RoyalBlue]<-- New for 18x drives[/COLOR]
This patch allows the setting of the book type without a disc in the drive and will hold this book type until the drive is reset/de-powered. No longer is the book type cleared when the disc is ejected.

Default book type DVD-ROM (ROMD) [COLOR=RoyalBlue]<-- New for 18x drives[/COLOR]
This patch sets the book type to DVD-ROM when the drive is reset. This option can only be enabled if the “Retain book type after eject” option is enabled, otherwise the first time you opened the tray the book type would be cleared. You can still change the book type with this patch applied.

My drive is a [B]Sony DRU-830A[/B].

Currently, it has an unpatched stock firmware SS15 on it, but I plan to it flash to a newer patched SS25.

Hi :slight_smile:
Welcome on board dawpa2000. :iagree: :clap:

  1. What does this book type do for me?

Means that you never have to worry about bitsetting your drive for DVD+ media.

  1. What is the benefit of having these two features enabled?

Should give greater compatibility with stand alone players.

  1. Are there any negatives to having these features enabled?

None that I am aware of. :cool:

Would “Retain book type after eject” work on S-203S?
