I am recording a video of skateboarding using a Digital Versatile Disk-Recordable (DVD-R), however, for some explanation can be refined on the computer. The disk is not acceptable instead I should use DVD-RW for camcorder or Digital Versatile Disc-Rewriteable (DVD-RW) disc to the computer? What is the difference between the two and why I can’t use DVD-R?

Hi

The difference between these two is that DVD-R only reads the DVd or cd that you are running in you DVD-ROM.You cannot edit ,insert or delete any sort of data through this.The purpose of this ROM is only to read the DVD using  DVD-ROM.

Whereas DVD-RW provides different tasks. DVD-RW is used for reading ,writing,editing or inserting  the data on DVD,S that are blank.With the help of DVD-RW you can read and write the DVD any time you want,but remember for this DVD-RW is necessary.Without this you will not able to write data on DVD.However you may read the data using DVD-R.

That is why you are unable to write you DVD using DVD-R.

Thanks

The Digital Versatile Disc – Recordable (DVD-R) is a type of media wherein you can only write on it once. After all the free space has been consumed, or after the disc has been locked from further writing, you won't be able to write on it again nor erase its contents. You will only be able to read from it. The Digital Versatile Disc – ReWriteable (DVD-RW) on the other hand can have data written on it, have that data erased and have new data written on it. You can write, read, format and write on it until the DVD-RW becomes defective. That said, there should be no issue if you were using the DVD-R unless the DVD-R you were using was already used up.

The reason why it is recommended that you use a DVD-RW is because later in time you might need to make changes to the video that you are recording using the disk, and that will be easy if you had used the DVD-RW which allows you to make changes on the files you have stored on it.

When you use the DVD-R, you can only write the files that you are record to it once, and later you cannot edit them or delete them, hence a big inconvenience in your case that you are in the process of coming up with a video that will need refining and fine-tuning to make it better.

You can also use a USB flash drive as an alternative for storing the recorded music so that to allow changes to be made to it later on.
