Please a dumb question:
Exactly how do use NERO to tell me the manufacturer ID of these DVD's I have?
So I have to burn one to tell??
Nero won't tell you.
Try SMART-BURN (works on non-LiteOn drives as well as LiteOn drives) or DVD Identifier.

Nero InfoTool & Nero CD-DVD Speed, which are bundled w Nero, can tell you MID too.And a new version of DVD Identifier is about to be released.
