If i have no intent on permanently archiving shows, is there any reason not to use dvd-rw to be able to play replay stuff in a dvd player? I know that not al dvd players will work with it, but it seems silly to waste all those dvd-r discs for something that will only be watched once or twice.

As long as your equipment is compatible, rw disks are fine. They're kind of like the VHS tapes of the 21st century.

I have found my RW discs only last a few re-writes before they start having recording/playback errors. Even with name-brand media, I need to perform a full erase before I can record on the disc again. With DVD-R discs so cheap, I tend to write my shows to them to avoid the hassle. One other benefit of 'R' discs is they can be written faster than RWs by most recorders.


YMMV, so try it yourself. Like 'chain' said, if the RWs work in your player you're fine.
