I wondered if booktype settings apply to both DVD- and DVD+, or DVD+
only. Given the dvd+rw-mediainfo output you provided, the answer is
both. I just wanted to be sure, that's all.

Could you try scsi -f /dev/rcd1c -c 'fa 00 32 00 00 00 00 00 00 00'? As
already mentioned the command seems to be 10 bytes long, 'aa ff' appears
rather as dummy padding than meaningfull part of the command.
I also wonder if you can try 'fa 00 32 00 01 00 00 00 00 00'?
