    This is not an emergecy,
    I was just wondering, you know how you can burn things into a CD-Rw many times, but, is there a limit to it?,
    what I mean is that,
    I have one or two CD-Rw's that I use to burn videos to play in the Philps DivX Player, and then erase them and burn something else,
    and I have done this many, and I mean many times, and it doesn't seem to
    wear out.
    Does this mean that, if I take care of the disc, I can use it indefenitly?
    or does it afect the 'burn quality'?, cus now that I come to think of it, the video quality is not that good anymore...
    well, what do you think?.

    Hope this helps, cool avatar.

    Your welcome. 500 rewrites should be plenty.
