[QUOTE=bevills1;2482535]Blank media will always show DVD+R book type, and DVD-ROM book type shows only after burning. Also all DL burners should burn DL DVD+R as DVD-ROM by default. The “FW not support” message may be expected for DL media since the Book Type Utility’s use is for SL media.[/QUOTE]
I realize if it’s blank it will only show the booktype that it is. When I tried running the utility it would not allow me to get to the change booktype option w/o media in the drive is why I said that. The utility knew the difference between SL and DL and even displayed it so I don’t think this is it.
What do you mean by ‘all DL burners should burn DL DVD+R as DVD-ROM by default’ ?? Is this something new? Can anyone confirm this? I’m going to a lot of unnecessary effort if this is the case and has been adopted by the entire industry as the standard since I last researched this.
