Can't format DVD+RW disc

  dangerusone 08:48 10 Apr 2008

I have a DVD+RW disc (make = Tuff Disc) at the moment it has a film on it. I wish to wipe the film off and use it again but when I right click on it in My Computer it doesn't give me the option to formatt.
In the past I have used this option to formatt memory sticks.
Can anyone help.

Why not use the Erase option?

If you are using windows software, it only works with CDRW, you need a package like Nero to perform a DVD RW.

Problem solved,I used the "Erase DVD" facility in Nero and it seems to have done the trick.

I must admit to feeling a little foolish about not looking for solutions closer to home before posting.
