I have been using DVD-R on both these drives but now I have some DVD+R which I want to burn with booktype set to DVD-ROM.

Sony-D56A (firmware PDS7)
LiteOn Bit Setting Utility V1.3.5 display the following:
Current Disk Type - DVD+R
Current Disk Booktype - DVD+R
Change Booktype to - DVD-ROM
“Save setting” and “Write Now” options are not available (greyed out).

When I click on “Change”, I get the message “BookType changed successfully” but when I click on “Query” the current disk booktype is still DVD+R. Nero Burning Rom tells me that Book Type is DVD+R.

LiteOn SHM-165P6S(firmware MS0N)
LiteOn Bit Setting Utility V1.3.5 display the following:
Current Disk Type - DVD+R
Current Disk Booktype - DVD+R
Change Booktype to - DVD-ROM
Only “Write Now” option is not available (greyed out).

When I click on “Change” with “Save Setting” option selected, I get the message “BookType changed successfully” but when I click on “Query” the current disk booktype is still DVD+R. Nero Burning Rom tells me that Book Type is DVD+R.

How can I set booktype to DVD-ROM on these drives?

Liteon drives do not correctly report their booktype changes in CDSpeed and other utilities. No idea why, it just is so. Try burning and you will find that the disc is ROM.
