What are the recordable DVD formats? This is an overview of the Recordable DVD formats for Set Top DVD Recorders and Computer DVD Burners; DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM, DVD+R, DVD+RW. Answer: There are five recordable versions of DVD: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM. DVD-R and DVD+R can record data once, like CD-R, whereas DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW can be rewritten thousands of times, like CD-RW. DVD-RAM is a removable storage device for computers and video recording. It has become widely used in DVD video recorders because of the flexibility it provides in editing a recording. The other two recordable format types (DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW) are essentially in competition with each other. There are many claims that one or the other format is better, but they are actually very similar. Many manufacturers now offer Set Top DVD Recorders and DVD Burners that record in both “dash” and “plus” format. Below is a brief look at each format.
