What does DVDRW mean or stand for ?
DVDRW was popular in the early 2000s.It is a type of DVD that could be erased and rewritten just like how our USB flash drives operate nowadays.However the operation was not so easy as writing to our flash drives or hard disk drive.
In order to use a DVD – RW,one should have had a DVD writer installed in his/her computer system.These writable drives could read and write both.The process involves using a “burning” software such as “NERO- Burning -ROM”.It took about 5 minutes to burn a full 4.8 GB DVD.
This could later be erased and re written with different data using the same technique.
