Having a small problem with my lite-on drive. Cant seem to set the booktype anymore to -rom with Lite-On’s booktype utilities once I updated firmware to TS0J from TS0C, using either v1.0.6(which worked with TS0C) or new version 1.3.5. Im using windows 98se with this drive so I dont know if thats a problem or not. The only reason I wanted to update firmware was to be able to burn some newer media at 4x instead of the 2.4x speed, and some of the discs I burned at 2.4x in rom booktype seemed to be incompatible with some of the drives I tried to read the discs with. I dont think TS0C supported the discs, but I think TS0D does, if im matching disc id right >Disc MID=43 4D 43 20 4D 41 47 00 (CMC MAG.) Disc TID= 4D 30 31 (M01) Manufacturer Maybe= CMC Magnetics Corp.<(TDK brand 16x DVD+R’s) What id like to do is be able to just drop a +R disc in and have it always default to burn in -ROM booktype, Ive tried using omnipatcher to alter a TS0J firmware to be able to do this but neither of the versions of the booktype utility I have say they change the booktype with stock or altered TS0J firmwares.
Couple sidenotes too, which arent crucial but I like the idea of using a later gen 3s firmware to become dual layer disc capable, would this be possible in win98se? Also the drive stopped be able to read cd-r/rom discs quite awhile ago, even tho ive burned many dvd+r’s in rom booktype since with no trouble or compatibility issues. I think it started when I tried to read a cd-rw that a friend wrote in what we found out to be a bad laptop cd drive. Still seems that it doesnt want to read discs even after a firmware update. This isnt crucial because I rarely use cd’s anymore and have plenty of burners for those.
Appreciate the help and sorry if this information was easily available but I couldnt seem to find it after alot of searching and I dont want to keep flashing the drive and risk ruining it since its been a reliable -rom booktype dvd burner until now.
