DVDRW - the best solution for error free storage?
Hi! Iâ€™m new here and Iâ€™m looking forward to learn
Since I bought a CD burner drive, and later, a DVD one, I am been making backups from my important data, like documents and videos. In my experience, I have encountered some burned CDs and DVD with reading errors, even after successful Nerosâ€™s â€œdisc checkâ€. Well, I start to buy better blank media (â€œVerbatimâ€ and â€œImationâ€), but sometimes errors still occur.
One of the things that I want to back up is my DV video tapes. Yes, I now that a DVD holds few time of DV video, but I think is better than stay with only tapes . Or maybe not! An error can kill a whole DVD of DV video! :a
Surfing the web I encounter someone saying that the best way to storage (DV) data was in DVDRW, with has a different writing process that prevents the burning errors in the only-writ-once DVDs. What is our opinion? And being RWs, are they more suitable for error recovery?
Meanwhile I installed Neroâ€™s â€œInCDâ€ and immediately my PC started to treat the DVD+RW like a large diskette (DVD+RW doesnâ€™t even have to be pre-formatted like DVD-RW ones do). Beautiful!
However, DVDRW have its disadvantages. They are:
- More expensive;
- Its files can be accidentally or maliciously deleted (by do way, is there any way to prevent this?);
- Burning is slower;
- It has less storage capacity when used â€œlike a large disketteâ€;
What do you think?
