  1. Hello. I also have these TDKs +R 8x and it has RW written on them. I remember copying VHS on them and finalizing the disc. Does that mean I can't format them and use them again?

    You can't format them again since there are +r.They aren't RW.

    I don't know, but you can be sure that that "RW" on the left doesn't mean "Re-Writable".

    Ooooops, I've just found this... From Wikipedia:

    {{
    ......the 'DVD+RW Alliance' logo is a stylized 'RW'. Thus, many discs have the RW logo, but are not rewritable.
    }}
