Similarly to the common CD-R, you see around, it is designed in such a way that you can record data but for a single time. Once burning has been done terns it has been written, no more writing can be done to it. Note that the capacity of the data it can hold differ from one DVD-R to another.
A single-sided standard DVD-R has the capacity to hold data of approximately 4.8 gigabytes while a double -sides standard DVD-R can hold data approximately 9.5 gigabytes. Remember this is possible since dual layer recording can be done to the DVD-R although there are additional charges due to the increased data storage capacity created.
Among all other types of DVDs, the most popular type is the DVD-R due to its usability flexibility and its high compatibility with many DVDs players as compared to the DVD+R.
