I am using a LG GSA-4082B writer on a windows XP

1) in terms of reliability of storing data flawlessly, does it make any difference if I store it on a 4.7 GB or 9.4 Gb RAM ( price is not an issue )

2) Is it correct to say that DVD RAM is the best media to store music (less prone to errors & better music quality) ; and DVD RAM is even better than those special disks(CDR) meant to store music

3) I have so far burnt 50 DVD RAMs on my writer ; is there any way I can tell if there is wear and tear , or what should I do to maintain the writing quality

4) what is the problem of oveburning a DVD R /RW , ( i think the max is 4.6 GB on a nero ? )

can I confirm my understanding that instead of buying a 2.5 inch/ ? inch Hard disk (200Gb) ; is better to own 45 DVD RAM disks (45* 4 .5Gb = 200Gb) ;

1) As compared to DVD RAM, Hard disk are more prone to loss of data/errors should you drop the hard disk ; carry the hard disks in temperature of 45 degree celsius etc

2) by owning DVD RAM , we are spreading that data loss risk by spreading that towards many DVD RAM s( 4.7 GB ) instead of concentrating all the 200 Gb data in one Box .
