LiteOn DVD RW

My LiteOn DVD burner is reading my DVD+R's as DVD-RW's for some reason. Could anyone here elaborate on why this is happening? Its out of warranty and I cant afford a new one.

iHap 322 with default firmware. I did not upgrade the firmware due to the fact that my 422 was doing the same thing after the upgrade.

I use convertxtodvd and daemon tools.

At first I thought it was the dvd+r's were bad until i hooked up a 16x dvd burner and they work fine in it.

Are they blank unused DVD-R's that show up as DVD-RW's?

The key words being "blank unused". I was just thinking if they were multi session it might make windows think they were RW disks instead of R.

Well i dont think you can have a blank used DVD+R...if something was on a DVD+R then Windows would ask me if i wanted to view files not burn a DVD. Daemon Tools and Convertxtodvd is reading the DVD+R's as DVD-RW's which in turn I do not use. This is a recent error. And you guys are not being of any help.
