DLA formatted discs -- Usable in the std disc format again or NOT?

I may have made the error of formatting numerous new blank DVD+R & DVD+RW, along with CD-RW & CD-R discs, only to find out that I probably should have stayed away from DLA altogether!!

Can these discs ever be (or ever be FORCED to be) made usable in the standard MS formatted disc processes again?? (or am I out mucho $dinero$ ? - Wil

Can I reformat them back to the real world of formatted discs, PRIOR TO DLA??

I think DVD-R and CD-R are not possibel,
CD-RW can be cleared in a burner program and be used again, DVD-RW probebly, not sure.
