|Refer to the article on Compatibility Bitsettings / Book Type Field for general information.|
On a Philips or Philips-based (like Yamaha, BenQ, Mico, Daewoo, etc.) DVD+R/+RW video recorder, you can use this procedure to apply the DVD-ROM bitsettings to an already recorded DVD+RW disc:
Open the drawer of the recorder.
Insert the disc containing the video recordings that you want to make compatible with one of the players marked with (cs). Do not close the drawer!
Press and hold the '2' button on the remote control of the recorder.
The drawer will now close, and the special procedure will be applied to the disc. This may take several seconds.
If the disc is still not readable, you might try to repeat this operation, but now press and hold the '3' key instead of the '2' key. This extra identification bitsetting is only available on DVD+R/+RW video recorders, and will only be helpfull for a very small minority of players.
You need to repeat this procedure for each disc that you intend to play on one of those players, the setting will not be stored in the recorder. Any new disc that you record will be recorded according to the standard DVD+RW settings again. To undo the operation, and make the disc fully conforming to the standard DVD+RW specification again, repeat the operation but press the '1' button instead of the '2' button.
You can not change bitsettings for DVD+R discs. A DVD+R/+RW video recorder will always record DVD+R discs with DVD-ROM bitsettings, for maximum compatibility.
