The Thomson drive can be quite tempermental with D/L discs as a whole, however you are in luck as the most compatible D/L discs on the market today (for any drive or application) are D/L Verbatim DVD+R. It helps alot though if your burner has the ability to set the booktype to DVD-ROM.

Yes setting the booktype to DVD-ROM will work well on DVD+R single layer discs aswell. Depending on burner it will burn A Dual Layer DVD+R and set book type to DVD-ROM normally. But a single layer disc needs the support from your burner or patched firmware which allows bitsetting. What burner do you have ???

As far as firmware updates go that is one of the better ones from Lite-On. Lots of options. I believe you will have to set the booktype manually but that isn't too hard. Just change a couple of things in your burn program and you will be all set. An easy way to test if your current firmware supports this option would be to open up your burn program and attempt to change it, if it fails then you will need to update your firmware with a booktype setting firmware for that drive.

I have seen them but I have yet to see a burner that supports the discs.

You gotta be kidding me. Burners that support them have been widespread for the last year and a half. Even my Pioneer 109 which is two generations old, supports both D/L DVD+R and D/L DVD-R. Virtually all of the newer burners from major manufacturers support them (ie Pioneer, NEC, Benq). Now if you are talking about the issues with the format itself, then I agree with you. However, there are no shortage of burners out there that will burn D/L DVD+R AND D/L DVD-R.
