Do you have to format a DVDRW disc before it can be used, I think you have to with CDRW disc's but don't know about DVD disc's. any advice would be appreciated thank you BLH.

I have used DVDRW's and I have not had to format.

Thanks Spanglish for your quick response that's all I wanted to know. when you want to reuse the disc how do you erase what's on it. Thanks

Be aware that DVD disks come in 2 flavours. DVD+ and DVD- It can be an expensive mistake to buy the wrong type! For instance Sony uses DVD- whilst Dell uses DVD+

If you are going to use the DVD RW to drag and drop files to Like a floppy, it will be necessary to format first
