    I have a memorex DVD+RW that has been written
    perhaps half a dozen times but now gets errors
    even after a "full erase". It has some scratches
    that look like head crashes in one 'slice' of the disk
    between a radius from center of 1" to 1.5".

    Now hard drives have software that can detect "bad sectors"
    and mark them unusable.

    Is such a thing remotely or conceivably possible with +RW???

    Dont bother to repair, the physical scratches maybe possible but +RW
    disks have very limited life anyway before you start seeng errors,
    especially if not kept really cool and in the dark. There is no way of
    writing a permanent sector correction track that I know of.. C+
