Will changing the booktype allow me to re-use disk?

Hi

Apologies if this is in the wrong place but this is my first post.

I have some +RW disks which have the booktype set to DVD-ROM and I cannot erase them so that I can re-use the disks. The disks have been used to back up DVDs using DVD shrink. No longer want the movies so need to re-burn.

I have tried re-formatting but nothing happens. My Artec DVD burner will not allow me to change book type so I am thinking of getting a drive that will. However, before I spend my money, am I on the right track? - i.e. will changing the book type allow me to re-use the disk in either my PC or with my Phillips stand alone DVD recorder?

Regards
Ken
