Probably a dumb question, since it's my first...
I'm getting into DL burning for the first time. I've been using Ritek G04 or 5 (whichever one is 8X -R) along with Herries 2.16 RPC1 riplock fw. When those ran out I bought some fujifilm 16X -Rs and +R DL.
The fujifilm DL discs are Ritek D01s, which burned fine @2.4X under the Herries fw using ImgBurn. Using ImgBurn, I was also able to verify the Booktype was set to dvd-rom.
But the fujifilm 16X SL I had bought turned out to be RITEKF1, recognizable only with the 205d firmware from liggy & dee. I have those burning just fine after flashing, but now when I try to burn another D01 +R DL under the new fw, I find I can neither verify nor set the booktype for +R DL under ImgBurn, and IB says it can't do a test DL burn w/o destroying the media.
I only have 2 DL discs at the moment, so I'm reluctant to to waste one. It's my understanding from reading rel. notes that the 205d fw is auto-bitsetting dvd-rom booktype for +R DL discs--but I don't understand why ImgBurn won't verify that (it just says 'unknown' (Failed)')
My question is, am I OK burning the Ritek D01 with dvd-rom booktype via this method under the 205d fw, or will i need to flash back to Herries?
