The DVD is re-writable, isn't it?

Well, R-Crypto can't create file-containers on RW discs due to serious risk for data loss because of some features Windows writes data on CD/DVDs.
Still, you can create a file-container on a hard drive, write files to it and write the file-container on the DVD disc. You may then connect the file-container to your system right from the DVD disc, although with the "Сonnect this disk as write protected" option only .
