    Got a question about shrink.
    When you goto click backup and the backup dvd screen pops up. Under burn settings, you have a button thats either checked or not checked called Book type DVD-ROM.
    Can someone explain what is the difference between normal and book type dvd-rom.
    Also, should it be checked or unchecked for backing up movies?
    Thanks

    did a google for ya
    When you set your drive by Book Type Utility to burn the DVD+R as DVD-ROM, how could verify after burning process is finished that the burned disc is now virtually or truly DVD-ROM? When such disc in Nero CD/DVD Speed reading shows the disc is still as DVD+R, Why? If that is the way suppose to be because of physical aspect of the disc, then how you demonstrate that this burned disc is DVD-ROM now or even the content of burned data is in DVD-ROM format?

    Sorry Horsemen, I dont understand what your trying to say.
    I have my drive set up as book type, and dvdinfopro scans it as dvd-rom. Under shrink should i leave it as book type or change it to normal.
    When I put a actual movie thats going to be burn and I do a scan on it, It states Book type is dvd-rom and media is dvd-rom.

    Ok, I did a google and found some info on DVD-Rom
    Dvd-Rom is used for more like compatibality issues with dvd players, instead of using like dvd -r/+r in book type, media will still be -r or +r, but having dvd-rom set in book type is what I should have set up and it wasnt.
