This is Hideki Takahashi from Toshiba.

In the Write Protection model,
could you please change the following part?

Before change:
"In the case of DVD-RAM media, there is Media Specific Write Inhibition
It is controlled by Disc Type Identification field of the Lead-in physical
information. When a DVD-RAM medium is removed from the cartridge, and if
any recording 
is inhibited by the Disc Type Identification field, MSWI is set to active
status. See
4.14.14,"Write Protection of a disc" on page99."

After change: 
"In the case of DVD-RAM media, there is Media Specific Write Inhibition
See 4.14.14,"Write Protection of a disc" on page99." ?

I will prepare the document about the write-inhibit status in the RAM part.

Best Regards,
