Bitsetting DVD-RW+?

#1

I have a problme with this media being burned as DVD-Rom. I tried to set the Recorder mode as “Physical Disk Type” hoping that any bitsetting would not be done. The burned disc always shows up as DVD-ROM. I can not erase with disc because Nero claims it is not a re-writable. I think I am bitsetting these discs. The plextor drive I have has stock firmware and the two Lite-Ons are the same firmware. How can I stop bitsetting (physical disc setting seemed the best option but didn’t work)? Are these just crap discs?

Plextor: PX716AL 1.0
Lite-On: SHW-1635S YV6P

Here is the DiscInfo (Memorex 4x DVD-RW+) prior to burn:

For your plextor, there is a place to change whether you want to bitset or not. Not sure about the lite-on, but I believe it is the same. You should be able to find exactly how, buy checking the burner forum and searching in the plextor and lite-on forums for “bitsetting”
