K...picked up an External Drive the other day, Samsung SE-S184M/AMBN and hooked it up to my guest room PC, Dell Dimension E520. I did a few burns and everytime I used Nero Recode or DVD Shrink I had the option to set the booktype to DVD-ROM. I decided to buy another one for my living room computer, Dell Dimension 8300. I hooked it up today and when it was time to do some burning, the option to booktype to DVD-ROM is not there. I bought these drives from the same store, they share the same firmware, don't know why the other one can't booktype...any thoughts? Also, these drives show up as TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M USB Device, can't find a firmware update for SE-S184M...so since it shows up as SH-S182M, although its external, you think I can flash it with the same firmware for the internal drive?
