DVD RECORDERS' RewritableDVD Discs.
There must be someone out there that has bought a DVD Recorder that uses DVD Rewritable discs,DVD+ RW orDVD-RW discs.Can you tell me how many times you can record some TV programs on these discs before they become no longer usable.I mean record in the same way we used to record TV programs on a blank VHS tape.Any suggestions on what brands of DVD discs to buy.Thank you.

They claim at least 1,000 times.

That helped a little.Between what the manufacturer says and reality,that's two different things.Anyone out there that has used one for a while can confirm this?

Re: What's The Best Quality DVD+RW Media
I would recommend Verbatim, but you should probably buy in small quantities to be sure that they work OK first. Please be aware that DVD rewritable discs were never intended for long term storage and if you record something you want to keep forever, you need to record it to DVD-R or DVD+R.

If you have a DVD recorder and that you use rewritable discs,just how many times did you record over and over until it became no longer good.

Re: DVD RECORDERS' RewritableDVD Discs.
I have used one at least 50 times. With DVRs the need to use a rewritable DVD is minimized so I've never had the need to test it. That is really a better way to go these days, especially for HDTV.

What is your application? If it is to use a DVD rather than a VHS tape recorder, I think a disc will outlast a tape in continuous use.
