RW disks have a very low level of reflectivity compared to a -R equivalent and many optical drives may be unable to read them.

Much better to use CD/DVD-R disks for reliability - it's also a lot cheaper.

The only reason for formatting a RW disk would be to use it in the form of a hard drive.

I've never formatted a RW disk yet since acquiring my then first rewriter more than six years ago, although their actual use has been very limited.
