Nice DVD/CD burning program.

I'm sure most of you already know how to do this, but I was creating a family DVD slideshow for Christmas and didn't know that you could change the bitsetting/booktype on DVD+ discs to make them more compatible with older DVD players. Example would be changing the booktype of a DVD+R disc to DVD-ROM (Like standard DVD movies). I came across the following free program that allows you to burn and change the bitsetting/booktype, and it's really cool.


I have an 8 year old DVD player that I tested this with, and it indeed works. I first tried a DVD+R disc and it wouldn't read it, but then burned a DVD+R and changed the booktype to DVD-ROM. The DVD player read it perfectly.

Might be a good idea to check this out for those who create and sell DVD's.
