Settings Utility for LiteOn DVD Writers
The Official Thread
What is it
The Settings Utility is much like the Smartburn settings tab but with a few extra nice features aimed at reducing the number of mouse clicks.
Firstly, the first tab displayed is the Options tab, so this saves one click:
Secondly, all options can be enabled with one click, so this saves two clicks:
And the last drive selected is restored the next time you run the Settings Utility, so this can save several clicks as well.
Clear OPC History displays a warning to avoid accidentally clearing the OPC history. This function does the same thing as the Smartburn Clear OPC History.
You can now also set the book type for DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD+R DL:
The book type can be set as the default or as a temporary setting, for each media type. If the setting is not permanent then a star (*) is shown after the book type. This should help to avoid a lot of confusion:
The "New setting" automatically changes to the alternate setting when the setting is applied, so you can toggle the setting by repeatedly clicking the set button. If you forget to set the book type as the default, just select the same setting again from the dropdown list, enable the "Set as default" option and click "Set".
Region setting is now very simple. Just click the option you want to set or clear all settings to the default. RPC1 is region free and seven region codes can be set, after selecting the option from the dropdown list. No longer do you have to worry about vender/user codes. Please note, BD drives cannot be set to RPC1 (region free) yet.
The Setting Utility can be left running in the background and will not affect any access to the drive. After a flash just select the drive from the dropdown list again to refresh the display.
1/ To avoid confusion, the "Smart Burn" option is now enabled when checked. All options checked is now all options enabled.
2/ For information about what the settings on the Options tab do, see this excellent addition to the FAQ by H3rB3i: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/f-q-liteon-optical-drives-revised-28-april-2007-a-109986/#HTOS
3/ BD drives cannot be set to RPC1, however they can still have near unlimited region code changes.
Special thanks goes to CDFreaks and RPC1 (The Firmware Page) and the authors of Dvdzone and PLScsi, xvi, Pat LaVarre and r-man. Without them, this utility would not have been possible.
