    Hi All !

    Another good thing could be DVD-RAM support. I do not know, if this works currently [nothing works on my x64 edition, so I cannot try]. DVD-RAM usually uses a separate driver, so supporting DVD-RAM in BwgBurn should not be magic work??

    Thanks a lot and
    best regards,
    Manfred

      Can you send me the log file from using the Drive Explorer on a 64 bit machine.  As to DVD-RAM support, I don't have a DVD-RAM drive and really cannot find one.  I will take a look at the local Fry's again to see if I can find a DVD-RAM drive.

      Thanks

      Hi !

      Yes:

      04.02.2007 21:18:23 Info Drive Explorer 0.7.0
      04.02.2007 21:18:45 Debug-8 Bwg.Scsi.Device.Inquiry(out result)
      04.02.2007 21:18:45 Error IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT failed - The parameter is incorrect.
      04.02.2007 21:19:02 Debug-8 Bwg.Scsi.Device.Inquiry(out result)
      04.02.2007 21:19:02 Error IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT failed - The parameter is incorrect.
      04.02.2007 21:19:13 Debug-8 Bwg.Scsi.Device.Inquiry(out result)
      04.02.2007 21:19:13 Error IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH_DIRECT failed - Indicates two revision levels are incompatible.

      This is for my three DVD drives, one of them the DVD-RAM. The latter is a multi-purpose-drive from LG [Windows Device Manager: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4120B]. The newer Models are named like GSA-H10N etc. They are cheap and good and include DVD-RAM support [but unfortunately no drivers :-( ].

      BTW, is there any way to configure the logging level? The output about looks a bit plain ????!

      Thanks and best regards,
      Manfred

      I found that my Blu-Ray drive from Sony supports DVD-RAM media.  No other drive that I own supports DVD-RAM, so I bought some DVD-RAM media and will have support for this in the BwgBurn-0.7.0 RC2.  I thought it was OK to add this as it is very well isolated from the rest of the system.  Only a burner class was required to support this.  No changes to the bwgburn core applications was required.

      Thanks

      Ok, I released 0.7.0 RC2 that has support for DVD-RAM.  The media I had came preformatted, so I have not added support to the erase/format utility.  That will come in 0.7.1, but if you have formatted media, you can write data to the disk.

      Thanks
