BTC DVD Book-Type Setting Guide

Introduction G

Most home DVD players will identify the so-called Book-Type of a DVD disc once it is inserted into the drive. This Book-Type is present in each DVD disc's physical structure. In total there are 5 relevant settings: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD+R, DVD+RW. Nowadays most home DVD players can support all mentioned types, but a small number of them can't support all of them.

So in order to be able to playback discs with Book-Types that are not supported by your home DVD player, you can use this DVD Book-Type Setting Tool to change your disc's Book-Type.

In general, DVD-ROM Book-Type can be supported by all DVD players.

Please note:

1. This tool only works under Windows 2000 or Windows XP !

2. DVD RW media type can be set before or after the burning process.

3. DVD R media type has to be set before the burning process.

4. DVD R/ RW setting process can be finished without any change on the screen.

5. If your DVD player already runs DVD R/ RW media properly, then there is no need for you to change book type.

6. In order to change to your DVD format you must leave the program open during the burning process.
