DVD + RW dual layer?

Is this DVD + dual layer rewritable? I see this "RW" on the package. I thought it was until I burned it then there is an error message that the disc is not empty therefore, not enough space.

I tried to erase the data then it says something like this disc is not rewritable or it cannot be erased.

I am using memorex dvd+R DL.

No. Unless it explicitly says DVD+RW on the package, it is not rewritable. Do not confuse the alliance tag with the DVD tag. ( Upper left and DVD+R with RW alliance tag with +R underneath (not slow connection friendly). Notice that under the alliance tag, it says what type it is +ReWritable and +R (See either pic above) respectively.

Oh, great, now I have a bunch of dvd only recordable but not rewiteable. thank you.

By the way, is there such thing as DVD + RW dual layer, as in rewritable and 8.5 GB about?

Sicne we are on the subject, what dvd +RW or - RW do you recommend? I only have memorex because it is cheap. I heard they are not stable, as in sometimes they don't burn well or they are corrupted after a while. I am looking for duration and stability because this is my way to back up stuff and store them as long as possible.

I don't recommend either dual layer, or RW for backups. The most stable DVD recordable is the single layer -R in my experience. Whatever disk type you go for, though, you should buy Taiyo Yuden. Visit www.rima.com for the best media store I ever tried. Memorex disks are pretty poor. They use CMC Magnetics dye most of the time.

It's not so much the brand name but who actually manufactures the disks. www.digitalfaq.com provides a good list of which disks are more stable and which are costar candidates.

Too slow, too late. Wait for HD-DVD burners.
