This DVD+RW Video Format Specification version 2.0 is designed in such a way, that new recorders can upgrade discs containing version 1.x video material to version 2.0 and start using (some of) the new features.
v Recorders supporting Video Format version 1.x may refuse adding content to a disc, which has been recorded already on a DVD+RW recorder supporting the version 2.0 of this standard. In general, recorders should never modify or append to DVD+RW discs containing Video Format material with a higher version number than they are designed for.
