Player is a BenQ 1640 with a very recent firmware. Used QSuite to set book type to DVD-ROM for DVD+R discs.
Used Nero 6.6 to burn DVD+R discs … log displayed right before burning starts … confirms that its setting Book Type to DVD-ROM
Inserted burned disc into standalone player … but is identified as DVD+R disc.
What gives ?
I have had this problem since I bought the 1640 … and during the last few weeks I burned a bunch of test discs by tweaking the configuration … and I can confirm that I have this one DVD+R disc that shows up as a DVD-ROM disc in the player. So I know that the player is capable of interpreting the book type if done right. But alas, I just dont remember what I had done to make it work correctly. Its not working any more.
All the DVD+R discs are the same Memorex 8X brand … so its not the disc … since one of them is working as expected.
Any advice ?
