Lite-On LH-20A1P: Bitsetting problems

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On LH-20A1P. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I need some expertise on this issue, I burned a DVD+R on my Lite-On DVD burner & set the booktype as DVD+ROM. This worked perfectly fine and my DVD burned fine.
Now when I take this new DVD into the computer it shows me that its booktype is DVD+ROM (under Nero Disk Properties) but when I load this DVD in my Sony DVD player connected to the TV, it shows it still as DVD+R.

Any ideas why this might be happening ? what can I do to resolve this issue.

Disk type and book type are 2 different things, and only book type may be changed while disk type will remain unchanged. Use Nero or DVDIdentifier to check, and you’ll see disk type remains +R while book type will be what ever it was set to when the DVD is burned.
