DVD-RW 'not recordable' NTI CD & DVD Gold (XP)

  as400man 19:32 29 Jan 2005

A blank DV-DRW disk(recognised brand)comes up as 'not recordable' using the Toshiba multi-format drive in my new Acer laptop. Windows Explorer properties shows the disk as DVD-RW.
I have written to DVD-R with no problems.
Do I have to format the DVD first? There is no format option I can see in XP.

Thanks and regards
