I have a liteon 451S@832S with the latest firmware (tried a few different firmwares) and cant seem to set the booktype for these Verbatim DL discs. The burner is set for auto-bitsetting (using omnipatcher) but it just wont set the booktype to DVDROM. I have already gone through 2 of these discs and would like to get confirmation that this drive is capable of setting the booktype on a DL disc before attempting it on my last disc. I am using Alcohol120% to burn the disc and everything seems to go fine with the burn until it finishes and I check the booktype. I also attempted to use the liteon booktype/bitsetting tool to make the changes with no luck.
The content of the DVD is video footage from a birthday party that couldve been burned to 2 DVDRs but I, like the fool I am, wanted to try out these DL discs.
I was thinking about trying Nero but since the problem seems to lie in the fact that the DVDROM booktype isnt being set by the burner (at least I think thats how it functions), I doubt it would work.
Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated as i’m doing this for free as a gift and am already $25 bucks in the hole with these discs. I shouldve just burned the 2 DVD+Rs and been done with it…learning the hard way is never fun… :a
