Just recently, I had to throw one of my Verbatim DataLifePlus DVD-RW discs into the trashcan, since there always would come errors when burning a DVD movie for instance.
Now it’s happening with my 2nd DVD-RW disc too.
I just don’t understand; DVD-RW discs are blank media, just like DVD-R and its sisters. There are no moving parts, so technically the DVD-RW disc should have infinite delete/write cycles, right? Or doesn’t it work that way?
Does a DVD-RW disc have a limit of a specified numbers of delete/write cycles? I think I read a long time ago that a DVD could do 1000 of those cycles.
But I haven’t even done 300 on my DVD-RW disc yet. So that’s why I suspect Nero Burning Rom for not deleting the data completly on the disc, when I do a full format. (There aren’t any big scratches)
Is there an application out there that can do a deep format of a DVD-RW disc to ensure that the disc is 100% blank?
Thanks in advance!
I consider myself blessed to get 30 cycles from a -RW disc, much less 300. I do a full erase after every use, which seems to help keep the error rates lower. I have much better luck with +RW discs.
