I have just got this and updated it 2 days ago to V6.6 I can't get it to format RW CD's. If I go to Data then click on Format /Prepare CD nothing happens. I can't find out why in Help and I know a lot of you guys use it. Can you help?

Have you selected the correct drive if you have two drives installed?

To erase a CD-RW in Nero click the recorder tab and then selsect erase rewritable disc.

Or in Nero Smartstart select Extras and Erase CD

It doesn't give me chance to select a drive, when I click on prepare/format nothing happens. Iam trying to do this in Nero Smart start, is there another way? I can get to Erase CD, but that doesn't format it for rewritting does it?

InCD installed?

You use Erase CD to remove all files and re use the CDRW. To Format for Packet Writing then you need InCD which allows you to copy files as you would a floppy disc.

You don't have to format a CD-RW to put data on it.If it has data on it erase it then burn on new data.:~)

Yes, I have InCD installed but I had stopped it loading on boot up in msconfig.Bapou, thanks for the imput I have reconfigured InCd to start on boot so I think that will solve the problem. Thanks to all.
