I am running Windows 98se with a Toshiba combo DVD/CDR/CDRW drive. When I try to use a new cdrw disk I get the message thet the disc is full but if I try to erase it I get the message that it is a blank disc. If I erase it anyway I can then record to it (but not always). It has been suggested that the laser is about to pack up. Has anybody had a similar experiance.

The disk (cd-rw) has to be formatted - what prog do you use? Nero InCD is what I use and it formats quickly and efficently - comes with Nero Burning ROM.
