The book-type of the media is reported as DVD-R. I'm not sure if
computer drives check the book-type, but I know that DVD
players(dedicated hardware connected to TVs) do check it. The
possibility of the report being wrong is much less than the printing on
the DVD packaging or its pre-recorded information (as you say that they
are no-name DVDs).
