I've had a DVD Burner in my current desk top for around two years, but have yet to read or write a DVD in it. I'd like to start making partition image backups on it using RW media (assuming it still works). When I used to do this on my CD Rom RW drive, the RW CD's had to be formatted for data first before use. Is there a similar requirement for RW DVD's? I suspect no, but it's just unclear to me.
