Burning a DVD and Changing its Booktype
Just recently I bought a new car, and while I've had SatNav on my phone for ages, this is the first car I've had that has it "built in". I decided to have a look at upgrading the DVD for one with more recent maps. I then found out that a new DVD from Jaguar was about £150. This made me think that I would rather make a backup of the SatNav DVD and keep the original with my car docs.
You cannot simply pop in the DVD and make a copy of it, because when the car reads the disk it knows it's a copy and refuses to load it. To get around that problem you need to edit the disks "booktype".
Note: This information is provided so that people can make a backup of their own legally bought software, I do not condone software piracy.
1. To copy the disk zoom over to ImgBurn and download their outstanding FREE software.
2. Start up ImgBurn > If it does not start in Ez-Mode (see below) > Select > Mode > EZ-Mode Picker.
3. Put the SatNav DVD in the Drive > Create image file from disk.
4. Set the location you want to save the image to, and click the icon as shown.
5. Time to go for a coffee, this is going to take a while.
6. Looking good > OK.
7. Now you will notice that this disk image is very big, in fact its larger than 4.7GB so it wont fit on a normal DVD+R disk, you are going to need a Dual Layer DVD+R disk, these are more expensive and have an 8.5GB capacity (I picked up 10 on ebay for £3), of course your DVD burner also needs to support burning dual layer disks.
8. Place your DVD+R DL disc into the drive and launch ImgBurn > Write image file to disk.
9. To change the booktype, select the small book icon in the bottom right hand corner of the window.
10. Select the maker of your drive > Then the media type you are ACTUALLY USING In this case DVD+R DL) >Finally select the setting you actually want to be set on the disk (DVD-ROM) >OK.
11. Time for another brew, milk and no sugar for me.
12. Job done click OK and lets test it.
13. Working :)
