Well, if the booktype really isn't getting set (are you sure that the booktype is not -ROM? your disc type will always be identified as +R if your disc is being read in a DVD burner--only the booktype gets changed, so make sure you're reading the booktype line and not the disc type line), then for some unknown reason, the command wasn't successfully sent to the burner prior to the burn.
At least for LiteOn drives, booktyping is done entirely by the burner and by the firmware. The burning software has nothing to do with booktyping whatsoever. Once the command has been sent to change the burner's booktype state, the burning program doesn't have to send any booktype-related commands, it doesn't even have to know what a booktype is. As long as you send the command (only have to be done once per power-down of the drive) before the burning program begins the burn, you're okay. Which means that if booktype failed for you, the only cause is that the command to change the burner's booktype state was not properly sent for one reason or the other. Making the firmware default to -ROM will be one possible fix for the problem as it eliminates the need for that command to be sent in the first place--it makes it so that software elements play no role whatsoever in the booktyping of the disc, which would make any and all software issues moot.
