A fews days ago I updated my Sony DW-D26a to the latest official lite-on SOHW1673s firmware (JS0C). Everything worked fine until today I went to burn a DVD+R and now I find that neither kprobe or cdspeed will allow me to bitset the booktype to DVD-rom. (Unfortunately I have to do this or my home player wont play dvd+r).
What's the story here, the old Sony firmware allowed me to booktype set DVD+R to DVD-rom without any problems. Now when I try to change the booktype in cdspeed nothing happens and when I try it in kprobe it just says "f/w not support". Any ideas?
BTW. I've temporarily flashed it back to Sony firmware "JYS2" so I can burn these DVD+R's. I'm not sure if JYS2 is what I had originally but it was all that I could find from Sony. Hopefully if someone can help me sort out the bitsetting issue then I can go back to the liteon firmware for better media support.
