What is BitSetting / Change Booktype?

Using the bitsetting (Set Booktype) feature in Kprobe to set your DVD+R/DVD+R DL/+RW media (Only DVD+R/+RW Media) backup to DVD-ROM for much higher compatibility with older DVD players and Game Consoles such as XBOX and PS2. Bitsetting is done during the burning process when bitsetting DVD+R Media. You can also set/change your DVD+RW Media's bitsetting/booktype, but the difference is that you can be bitset DVD+RW Media even AFTER you have burned it.

Directions on this page are directions on how to Bitset on Lite-On Burners only. If you have other burners (Non Lite On) such as Plextor, NEC, BenQ, LG, LITE-ON, Nu Tech/QSI and Ricoh Burners use the Plextor, NEC, BenQ, LG, LITE-ON, Nu Tech/QSI and Ricoh Burners: Bitsetting How To Guide or other burners please refer to the other Bitsetting Programs

Booktype Utility: Please download the new Lite-On BookType Utility for your Lite-On Burner: Lite-On Official Website, use this booktype utility instead of the Kprobe's Bit Setting function, apparently the Kprobe's booktype function will not work properly with the new firmware upgrades on some lite-on drives. Booktype utility tutorial has now been updated on using the Official Lite On BookType Utility.

From CDFreaks.com: "Here are the firmwares where certain LiteOn drives first started to officially support bitsetting. Any of these firmwares and any firmwares released after them will support bitsetting..."
LITE-ON DVD+RW LDW-401S ES0K 2004/02/13 15:52
LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-411S FS0G 2003/12/17 20:15
LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-811S HS0J 2003/12/16 14:55
LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-451S GSB7 2004/01/15 10:53

LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-812S US0J 2004/04/14 11:17

All firmwares for all non-slimline drives released after the SOHW-812S support bitsetting.

Bitsetting unfortunately has its restrictions when it comes to which burner can bitset. BBurners that cannot be bitset are burners which are not Ricoh engine based, which bitsetting has based its technology around. For other burners that are not Lite-On's you can try the following bitsetting utilities found in the article/links below:

  1. A very nice Bitsetting article titled: Apply Compatibility Bitsettings using a DVD+R/+RW PC Drive by DVDplusRW.org. You can also download the software BitSetter.
  2. Or DVDInfoPro - Bitsetting capable for LG, BENQ, NU, NEC, BTC, Liteon, Micro Advantage
  3. Or DVD Decrypter BitSetting FAQ - Bitsetting capable for BenQ, LG, LITE-ON, Nu Tech/QSI and Ricoh drives
