Formatting discs with XP Home edition

  ChasNoel 19:55 04 Sep 2008

I recently bought some new CD-RW discs but cannot use them; I get an error message "Unable to write to disc"; I suspect they need formatting. Can anyone tell me how to do this with XP Home edition?

XP cannot write to RW disks they require a different writng package you will need soething like InCD that is part of Nero burning rom.
