What am I missing here? I have seen a lot of posts from people that have different drives (other than the coveted Pioneer 111d) that have been unsuccessful in burning backups. Is this primarily from user error? Shouldn't a properly flashed DVD burner (with official or modified firmware) capable of booksetting DVD+R DL media to DVD-ROM be just fine to burn backups? I have an NEC 3500A burner with modified firmware that sets all booktypes to DVD-ROM, DL, +R, and +RW. Now, I haven't attempted to burn a backup yet, but I will, and technically I don't see why it shouldn't work. Are people just not modifying their burner's firmware to compensate, which is why the 111d (OOB does DL bitsetting to DVD-ROM) is recommended?
Please help me understand, as I have searched, especially if there is a technical reason that I haven't been able to find an answer for.
Thanks guys, you are the best.
