- ABGX 1.0.6 (download at ABGX Download)
- growisofs (download here or here)
- LiteOn iHAS x24 DVD writer flashed w/ iXtreme Burner Max (Mac instructions here)


1) Follow the URL above to flash your new DVD writer's firmware w/ Burner Max

2) Run ABGX 1.0.6 (or later) to patch the ISO w/ LT+ 3.0 topological data

3) Burn in OSX using the following command:
growisofs -use-the-force-luke=break:2133520 -speed=2 -Z /dev/rdisk5=/Backups/backupFilename.iso

- Only use Verbatim DVD-R DL media in conjunction w/ Burner Max
- Change drive and filename accordingly
- speed 2 is the same as 2.4
- I have not tested burns @ 4X

Optional - ImgBurn for Windows (Recommended burning method for systems w/ 4GB or more of RAM):

Since you will need VMware/Parallels with Windows to flash Burner Max firmware to the Liteon drive you may also use ImgBurn in the same VM to burn backups instead of using growisofs:
ImgBurn (download here)

ImgBurn LT+ 3.0 burn settings detailed within the Burner Max firmware bundle (here)
