What does DVD RW mean or stand for ?

The DVD RW was a regular DVD except that it cold be erased and rewritten with new data.A special DVD ROM known as a DVD writer was needed to rewrite a DVD RW.

Just like a normal DVD,it had a data capacity of 4.8 GB and was similar to today’s USB flash drives except writing it took longer and the process was much more tedious.

In order to write a DVD RW or even erase it,you need to have had a “CD burning program”.The most famous was called “Nero Burning ROM”.
