I enjoy treating DVD+R’s and DVD-RWs(×6) as if they were USB sticks and DVD-RAM’s using UDF.
Disc lifespan expired? RW cycles consumed? No problema, because:
I have backups.
That DVD-RW was worth only €0.15 per piece anyways.
Honestly, I have never managed to exhaust the rewrite cycles of any RW disc, even crappy quality ones. (using the BU20N or BE14NU40, still extreme quality. The SH-S182 from 2006 fails burning CD-RW due to expired lifespan, but DVD-RW? No problem, surprisingly!).
