Definitions for "DVD-RW"
A re-writable DVD with a capacity of 4.7 GB per side. The DVD-RW is an alternative to the DVD-RAM, which supports fewer re-write cycles than DVD-RAM but is claimed to be more compatible with DVD-ROM drives.
The rewriteable form of DVD-R. It is being added on to some DVD-R drives to add functionality. DVD-RW disks can write 4.7 GB of data.
Just as CD-RW is a rewritable counterpart to CD-R, the DVD-RW format is an erasable, re-recordable version of DVD-R. A single-sided DVD-RW disc offers 4.7 GB of storage, allowing you to record up to 120 minutes of studio-quality MPEG2 video (with a compatible computer DVD-RW drive or home DVD recorder). DVD-RW discs can be erased and re-recorded upon up to 1,000 times. Once a DVD-RW disc has been recorded and finalized, it can be played back in some regular home DVD players and computer DVD-ROM drives.
