    Google tells me that model of DVD writer is a Hitachi slimline model (for laptops). Aside from the fact that I've yet to come across a slimline DVD writer that supports bitsetting/booktyping, it seems Hitachi writers don't support it anyway (as in, google turns up nothing on how to use it and imgburn doesn't even have a Hitachi tab in its bitsetting page).

    EDIT: A lil more digging into forums and it looks like Hitachi will booktype automatically. Try "closing" the DVD-RW (preventing further writes to the disc), and it should do the rest automatically. If it doesn't, well at least DVD-RW are cheap.

    Sausage's right. Read the rules. Triple-posting is against the rules. Next time you're getting a warn.
