I have been using a phillips +rw disk for a couple of months now, formatted and accessed using roxio directcd to backup data files etc. it seems now like files which are stored on the disk and were ok are suddenly becoming corrupted and unreadable, generating crc errors etc. These files were ok a few weeks ago when I rebuilt my pc.

roughly how many times can a +rw disk be written to before the chemical layer starts to breakdown?

500 times is you are overwriting the same data file, otherweise 1000 times. At least that's what it's spec'd to do

of course most DVD+R/W Discs are very low quality at this time (check the media reports in this forum posted by rjw), so I would doubt that you could get 500 or 1000 re-writes. It's the same with low quality CD-RWs.

If you want stability in Re-Writability, go for DVD-RAM it offers 100,000 times re-writability! though most things don't support it
