As far as I know, you are not doing anything wrong. The options have changed on the DNG converter. The only real option is to specify which version of Camera Raw will be used for compatibility. This might have been change when the DNG specification changed.
You can still control exactly the same things you could before, just the UI has changed.
Linear is the conversion method option, with a different UI. No functionality has been lost.
Uncompressed is the compression option, with a different UI. No functionality has been lost.
The reason the compression and linear options have been moved to a custom dialog is very few users truly understood them, and many users would change their default values in ways that wasted disk space because they did not understand what they were doing or why they were doing it. Only in VERY rare use cases does is make any sense to use to custom compatibility option. The main compatibly version option does exactly what nearly all users need to do, when they want to create DNG files that are readable in older versions of Camera Raw.
Can you please explain exactly why you think you need to control the custom options?
All my concerns dissolved thanks to your help guys. I have no need to control custom options now that I understand what is happening automatically.
Thank you Kindly
