Software Update: DVD Identifier 3.3

Spread the love

DVD Identifier can display specific information of a writable DVD. For example, the program shows the manufacturer of the disc and the speeds at which the disc can be burned. In release 3.3 it is now also possible to identify double-layer DVDs and DVD-RAM discs. The full changelog shows the following changes:

Changes in latest version:

  • Support for double-layer DVD+R (DVD+R DL) and 16x DVD+R discs.
  • Through the use of an internet-updatable database the Manufacturer IDs are now displayed together with their full manufacturer name (eg ‘MCC’ is now also shown as ‘Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.’).
  • Support for DVD-RAM.
  • Added a warning indicating that 8x DVD-R discs cannot be detected. Even though 8x detection code is in-place no drives currently report sufficient ‘write strategy’-information to make this work. Note that although 8x detection by analysis of the ‘Media code’-block currently does not work you will still get 8x write descriptors if your drive is capable of writing at this speed.
  • Added a ‘More info’-button that will redirect to an on-line resource that contains additional information.
  • Slightly different, more detailed method of reporting the certified recording speeds of DVD+R/+RW discs.
  • The Media ID on DVD+R/+RW discs is now shown as a 3 digit ID (eg 03 is now shown as 003)
  • Various small changes, fixes and improvements.[break] click for a larger version
