Problem with purchased DVD's

I bought 10x DVD+RDL's from Currys for £15 last week. On the disks it says RW which i automatically assumed meant that these were rewritable. After checking the net i now know that there are no RW dual layered DVD's out and was wondering if i am entitled to me money back. I have copied onto about 6 of them now and feel quite cheated :(.

Did it say on the packaging or receipt that they were rewritable?
#2
If you've used them I would have thought you'd have little chance of them taking them back unless there mislabeled. . .
#3
Shocking! Strange that disk says RW and box +R. Only ever saw DVD RW DL as a drive not the actual media. I would go back to Currys and argue with them ....
#4
it does mean that they are mislabelled because it says RW on the actual disks, kind of like false advertising imo

It says DVD+R DL, and in a box directly underneath it says RW, like it would say on any RW disk. Time to search for the receipt.

the RW logo is on all plus disks
RW is a logo of DVD+RW Alliance that developed the plus format
does not stand for rewritable
dont think you have grounds for a refund

ive been backing up my hd. Accidently burn't the same thing twice which is why i needed the RW. Only 60GB to go.

I still think its misleading to have RW, some advice for the others.

You still didn't answer my question - If the box or packaging doesn't state it's Re-Writable, then you shouldn't assume it is re-writable regardless of what the actual disk says :P
