    From what I've read about bitsetting (not much), it won't do what you want. The idea is to take DVD+R/+RW and create a disc that fools a player into thinking it is a normal DVD-ROM instead, allowing it to be recognized by hardware that doesn't recognize the +R/+RW format otherwise. It doesn't make blank media ny more compatible and it doesn't apply to -R burners (like the DVR-103) at all This link explains it in a little more detail:

    If it doesn't have the most recent firmware, you could try that. Other than that I have no idea. My first burner was a DVR-104, so I'm not real familiar with anything older.
