The commands don't work without media; the drive returns "not ready"
3A/01: medium not present - tray closed. The drive accepts the command
to apply the DVD+R command to DVD+RW media; however, it seems to have
no effect. The book type remains +RW.

Also, I tested the command to set +R media to -ROM, and it works fine.
However, the same command is supposed to set -R media to -ROM, but it
didn't work for me. I'll see if I can move the drive back to a Windows
machine and test if it works properly there.
