I recently bought some Verbatim cd's but My PC does not seem to recognise them. I wonder if they need formatting and read on a help site that all I needed to do was go to My Computer, right click on the DVD drive and them click Format. There is no sign of Format when I do this. Has anyone any ideas and is it true that discs no longer need to be formatted?
I have never had to format either cdrw or dvrw. with both after writing you get the option to wipe the disc but I always use either Nero or CyberlinPower Producer
It is presumed that you do have a writer on your system ?
standard discs once writen cannot be formated as this will make them unusable.they also cannot be erased
once a RW disc has information on it the option to erase should be there but for first use put them in and write. ( depedant n your settings you may get a popup with the option to open the disc these will be in the burners settings
I have now managed to format the disc which is working pefectly. There was no need to use Nero or any other software. I opened 'My Computer' and finally managed to open the E Drive showing 'Format'. Earlier attempts at this failed. Don't ask me what I did right on this occasion. I do not know!
