When I use a re-recordable disc, either DVD-RW or DVD+RW, it burns fine until I go to use it again. Then I can’t write anything on it because it says it is a DVD-ROM! How can that happen and what can I do to get around it?
I’m not sure how to change the booktype to +RW media. Would I have to do that every time I used an RW?
It seems that the problem is during recording the first time the drive changes the booktype to DVD-ROM. Then when I go to erase the disc I can’t because it says you can’t do that to a DVD-ROM which makes sense. But the concern is why does it change it to a DVD-ROM in the first place.
My drive is one of the newer ones, Optiarc AD-7170A. That’s a NEC and Sony drive.
Yes I have tried different drives and yes before writing the first time the recorder erases the disc. It’s only on subsequent uses that I can’t erase the disc.
If you are saying that the +RWs are automatically being booktyped to DVD-ROM, then you should probably use Nero CDSpeed to permananetly reset the booktype for that drive back to DVD+RW.

Also, you can check under NeroBurningRom, check ‘Options’ when you get to the current recorder screen.
