    I am following the guide here: http://gbatemp.net/t219243-neogamma-r9-beta-test
    I need to change the booktype from DVD+R to DVD-R. To do this I was following this guide: http://www.k-probe.com/bitsetting-booktype-faq.php
    Everything on the guide in the second link was working fine, but the dvd decrypter I downloaded does not contain any of the names that are in the guide. Its just called dvd decryper, but it looks the exact same as the pictures in the guide. Once I get to step 7, I cant proceed. No matter what I put for the "Change For" the "Current Settings" always says, "Unknown (FAILED!)"


    Any help or another way to change the booktype to DVD-R would be great. Thanks!

    Depending on the media u are using and the firmware of you DVD-RAM device,
    you can change the booktype of you media within the program you use to burn your discs.

    There's nothing special needed.

    Sounds like your drive is incompatible with it. I would try it again with ImgBurn, it has more drives in the change list.

    It depends on the software, the burner and the driver for the burner. I needed to install a custom firmware for my burner to be able to bitset DVD+R to DVD-R. If you have bad luck, then your burner or its firmware won't allow you to do it.

    I am using IMGBurn like FIX94 suggested to use. I am still coming to the same problems that I did before using my regular computers ability to burn disk. If you need to know what computer im using its

    Windows 7 Enterprise

    Processor: Intel Core™ i5 CPU M 520 @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz

    Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.43 GB usable)

    System Type: 32-bit Operating System

    also the disk I am trying to burn on is Maxell DVD+R 4.7 GB RW

    Go to the icon near the bottom left that looks like a book and click it. Find the brand of your DVD drive and there will be an option "Change For". Pick "Drive (For DVD+R Media)". After that pick DVD-R from the drop down list next to "New Setting".

    ^ this.

    You might be out of luck. My laptop burner does not support booktyping, but my desktop burner does.
    You could try googling if other people are able to do it with the same burner.
    Or try the manufacters website.

    Otherwise, buy DVD-r disks, or even better: an usb harddrive.
