I've got the Pioneer drive. According to DVDInfo, it's already got firmware version 1.23 on it. However, just burned a backup of a game I own, and when I put the disc in my PC Samsung drive (which is flashed to read Xbox 360 games), it just comes up as a CD, and not an XBOX360 game as with the original. In IsoBuster it's listed as DVD+R, rather than DVD-ROM.
I'm assuming that the drive has the factory version of 1.23 on it. Do I need a hacked version of 1.23 to auto bitset? I've yet to try this on my Xbox 360 (because I haven't flashed the drive yet), but it doesn't seem like it would work anyway. Or are the above symptoms normal for a backup disc?

check the bitsetting on the disc with dvdinfopro. Put the disc in your drive, and click the "media info" button. It should say that the book type is set to dvd-rom.
there is also a way to check the firmware version on your drive in dvdinfopro. When in the Drive Info Mode (the default mode that it starts in), there is an information frame on the right side that lists the "Firmware Revision". if you recently bought the drive, then it should have a pretty recent firmware revision and automatically bitsets. I am not sure of all the versions that do, but I am sure that 1.23 does.

The right hand panel says thats it's version 1.23. The point is, the original disc could be read by my hacked Samsung PC drive, but the backup can't. And when you try to do anything re booksetting in DVDInfo, it gives you a message saying Pioneer drives can't be bitset, or something like that.
My main question was, does the factory firmware auto bitset to DVD-ROM, or do I need the 'hacked' v1.23 firmware to do it?

you do not need any hacked firmware for the 111D. the 1,23 firmware will autoset the booktype. you are either creating your backups incorrectly or you are using bad media. double check how you are creating backups first. remember you need to unlock the drive before ripping to get the game partition visible.

the 111D doesn't need a firmware newer than 1.13 or something
1.23 is perfectly fine.
The dangerous bro's firmware will remove the region lock on the burner, you may want to do that for other purposes.

Jesus, just re-read the tutorial and I don't think I unlocked the drive! Muppet!

well phil, if you are using xbc 2.x to back up your original game disc, it automatically unlock your drive if you select 'complete backup'. give it a try. anyway, i flashed my -111d from original 1.23 to the tdb 1.23 the moment i got my drive because i trusted TDB firmwares for a long time though, they are just fine......

You're having the same problem I had with my 111D. You are not having problems with bitsetting as it does not need to be done. You are having problems with the Pio 111D applying the correct label to your discs. The label should be like XBOX360. You are getting the label CD Drive. Use IMGBURN and always check to make sure that the label is correct. If it says CD Drive there is something wrong. I used to make tons of coasters. Since I switched to IMGBURN I haven't made a single coaster.

i am using 1.29 factory firmware and have not burned a single coaster using imgburn...
