Presumably you meant 14GB. :)  Funny I was just reading about DVD-RAM and
DVD-RW last night and they were only talking a max of 4.7GB per side.  But
it may not take too long to get higher densities.  Yes, you could lose a
lot of data - one of the things DVD-RAM has going for it is a case around
the disk akin to the case on a 3.5" floppy.  Reducing the likelihood of
damage has to help.
