Sony DVD+R

I have bought Sony DVD+R 4X from staples and ran DVDidentifier. It doesn’t show ID at all. For that matter I haven’t had any luck with any DVD+R disks so far (using Verbatim, Maxwell and Riodata, all bought from physical stores)
I took the DVD id results after burning onto the disk using DVDShrink and Nero Express. (Not sure if that matters)

Media brand: Sony DVD+R
Speed (claimed) : 4X
Burner used : BenQ dw 400a
Firmware : B1MY (latest)
Please see DVD id output below:

Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R:NO_ID_PRESENT-???-000]

Disc & Book Type : [DVD+R] - [DVD+R]
Manufacturer Name : [Manufacturer Not Found In Database]
Manufacturer ID : [Not Present On Disc]
Media Type ID : [Not Present On Disc]
Product Revision : [Not Specified]
Blank Disc Capacity : [Not Supported By Method 2]
Recording Speeds : [1x , 2.4x]
[Method 2 Might Not Always Detect All Speeds]

[ DVD Identifier - http://DVD.Identifier.CDfreaks.com ]

On the other hand, I bought a couple of DVD+RW (Sony) and they show Media code as shown below:

Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+RW:SONY-S11-000]

Disc & Book Type : [DVD+RW] - [DVD+RW]
Manufacturer Name : [Sony Recording Media Co.]
Manufacturer ID : [SONY]
Media Type ID : [S11]
Product Revision : [Not Specified]
Blank Disc Capacity : [Not Supported By Method 2]
Recording Speeds : [1x , 2.4x , 4x]
[Method 2 Might Not Always Detect All Speeds]

Could someone help me with this.

Thanks,

Let me clarify my previous post. I was wondering if there are any setting to be done to get DVD media code for BenQ dw 400a. Since I tested 3-4 brands of DVD+R media, I think it may be something wrong with the writer. Your suggestions are very appreciated.

Thanks,
