I've a few questions regarding DVD overburning.
Particularly, I'm referring to the slim IDE/ATA internal DVD writers coming with laptops about 10 years ago (Pioneer DVR-K17A, in my case, but I could get other second-hand models of other brands, if necessary). I've known that the majority of burners doesn't support DVD overburning. Are the slim internal IDE DVD writers different from the normal IDE ones for desktop PC (in terms of DVD overburning support)?
As far as you know, is there 1 or more models of IDE internal DVD writers (of any manufacturer) that is actually able to overburn DVDs?
Or this feature only belongs to DVD writers of desktop PCs?
After all, this operation just concerns the writing beyond a certain number of sectors.
So, if the firmware contains a limit of sectors beyond which the burner cannot write, what about finding and raising that limit in the firmware file?
Is that possible, theoretically?
