Please keep doing that.
"Hence, every time I want to copy or add files into the DVD+RW, I have to copy the files inside the DVD+RW to my laptop and then recopy those files from my laptop back to the DVD+RW together with some new added files."
That's the safest way to keep your files intact. While InCD and other software will allow use of RW media as a disk drive the stories you read here when it burbs and they want to know how to recover the files are legendary.
That's the way it works. . .
When I do my backups to DVD-RW I do the quick erase first, then copy files.
On the other hand, if the disk is not full, it should add the files. Not closing the disk will enable this. If you close the session then you need to erase the disk first.
That's the way it works. . .
FYI, I know that closing the DVD will not allow me to write my files into the DVD. So, I did not even close it but why I can't write my files into the DVD ever there are more than 50% of the space?
I believe that DVD+RW works like a floopy disk. Hence, can anyone tell me what should I do?

The answer to this is "how things work." Have you researched or do you know how file systems and then "packet writing" works? If not you may not be ready for the technical answers. But let it suffice there are limitations to multisession CD/DVDRW use.
Is that good enough?

Thank you for your reply. I believe that my problem is not a matter whether my technical knowledge is up to a standard. I believe that copying of data into DVD+RW is a simple thing, just like copying data into diskette.
Hence, if you could guide me the steps of copying the data, that will be great.
FYI, I did format my DVD+RW before the 1st usage. I'm not sure whether formating will affect my DVD.
Re: copying to DVD
1. What's your OS (Windows Vista or Windows XP)?
2. What burning program do you use, and how?
copying to DVD
My OS is Win XP Service Pack 2, Home Edition.
The Burning program is Sonic.

That is not true. There are deeper issues here and limitations in the packet writing systems. I can't duplicate how it works here but in a nutshell multisession does have limitations and is not exactly like a diskette.
have limitations and is not exactly like a diskette
If it is true as what you mentioned that DVD+RW have limitations and is not exactly like a diskette. In the first place, why DVD+RW is created? How come it is not user-friendly?
Think back in time.
DOS was considered user friendly just a few decades ago.
Some may not consider this an answer but if we add on that there is NO STANDARD in packet writing and the makers competed (campaigned?) for theirs to be "it" you might begin to understand how we got here.
-> There it is. You would not only want to research how packet writing works but how we got here and the battles/skirmishes along the way.
Dvd/rw was created so that we can rewrite..
many many times. We can also use it just like a floppy but what we are trying to tell you is that it is NOT as reliable when use in such method.
Sigh.... So many ********* here and there. So, what is the simple solution to write data to DVD+RW without erasing the exsiting data in the disc?
That, without the issue you noted ...
Might be solved by changing which packet writing software you are using.
But then again the lessons learned here show it's not reliable enough. What I find is most won't agree until it happens to them.
Donṫ know what Sonic call it program, but...
Nero call its program ?Incd?.
