    Hope someone can help me out.
    I'm trying to upgrade the firmware on my Philips dvp630 dvd player. The instructions tell me to write both dvpxx.rom and dvpxxdv.rom files onto a blank cd-r, using the following settings:
    File system CD-ROM ISO level 2
    Mode 1/2/XA
    Character set ISO 9660
    Finalised, single session
    Write speed slow (eg 2x or 4x)

    I have the files and have tried to write a disc in Toast Titanium 6 under the ISO 9660 setting but the disc is not working in the dvd player (tried twice). I'm unclear about the ISO level 2 setting and the mode 1/2/XA setting as neither seem to be options in toast (ISO level 1 is there ok). Can anyone guide me through this or suggest where i might be going wrong.
    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I know, Finder burns ISO 9660 discs at level 2 by default (as a hybrid with HFS support as an add-on, as a generic multi-platform format). Level 1 is the older DOS compatible format with filenames no longer than 8 characters and a 3 character extension (8.3). Level 2 added 32 character filename support.

    You might take some encouragement from this:

    Cheers. I'll give it a spin and see if it works.

    No joy. I'm just getting a root directory folder on the data cd menu. :confused:

    EDIT: got it working, a third file from the download is meant to be included in the burn despite the instructions stating otherwise.

    Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

    Too fast for me - I was about to suggest Burnz (which will do strict ISO 9660) - glad you got it sorted.
