Hi all!
I’ve also a Dell5150 laptop that NOT read DVD+R(W) with DVD-ROM booktype.
I tried to change the book for a RW media with LiteOn utility without rewrite the disc: the laptop read this all ok.

Can a wrong book setting make a disc not readable?
Is always fine to write +R(W) media with -ROM type?

Thats wierd. It should be fine to read a RW Disc with a ROM booktype. If you are not using it in any other place besides the laptop, id just keep the RW booktype.

I would bet you have a combo drive in your Dell. I have seen a lot of combo drives that choke on RW.
