Nec 3500. I had the official 2.17, and binflash -querybt listed a “temporary” BT setting for DL (and perm for R,RW,DL). I then flashed with herrie’s 2.17 (since I know official 2.17 doesn’t support SL BTing) and re-ran querybt. Now it didn’t have that temp, and just the perm for R,RW,DL.
Now, the problem is that with winbtype (from mad dog media) it just says “Eject disk. Try again.”, when I have a new +R disk in there. Alternatively I tried using binflash to change the perm setting of +R to -ROM and it says that the firmware doesn’t support it.
What’s the problemo?
Also, the 500 limit for perm changes means that every time I change the perm, it drops the counter by one, right? So, I can burn a million disks with a changed booktype, but it’s only when I explicitely set it for the drive that it causes a count? And, if I did temp each time I booted the comp, there would be no counter ever changed?
