Sorry if this is in the wrong section - I didn't know where else to put it.
Just a quick question. If you have recorded on to a dvd rw (on a dvd recorder), but then someone tries to finalise it on a computer, when the disc goes back into the dvd recorder, a message comes up saying it is a "bad disc". You cannot then erase it or re-format it on the recorder as it just gives the error message "bad disc". It then doesn't seem to erase properly if done on a computer. Is the disc knackered?
Just to let you know that I've tried formatting the disc numerous times on the pc but it just keeps coming up with "unable to format disc". It gets almost to the end but then does not work. It is the same when I try to format it on the actual dvd recorder - it gets to almost the end, but then says "bad disc".
My suggestion is try the same thing with another disk and see what it does. If the new disk is ok then its almost certainly the disk thats at fault.
Incidently I never use RW disks as I found that they would go faulty for no reason that I could see, they are just not stable enough in my opinion. If you really have to delete and erase stuff all the time them in my opinion you are better off with a pen drive.
