How exactly does one go about changing book type of a recordable DVD to DVD-ROM?
I have tried both BTC’s new bitsetting utility, and DVDInfoPro, but do not understand the exact order of steps to be taken to change the book type of a +R or -R to DVD-ROM. (I am not concerned with RW media at this point.)
I believe that for +R or -R media, I must first run the bitsetting utility, then burn the disk.
But if I have run the bitsetting utility, my burning program (DVD Decrypter in this case) does not detect a burner as being present (“No Devices Detected”).
If I open DVD Decrypter first, then the bitsetting utility will not detect the DRW1008IM burner.
I have had problems with one of my DVD players locking up on recordable media, and hoped that bitsetting might help.
(Using DVDInfoPro to change book type I get the messages:
“Cannot alter book type of DVD+R” for a +R disk, and
“Cannot alter book type of written DVD-R” for a BLANK -R disk.)
