Why do you need to format the disk in the first place?Some previous forum threads:click hereclick here
But in earlier systems RW disks need special software called 'Packet Writing'Such as Neroor my favourite click here
Hi, I need to format the disk because im trying to back up my files and before the back up process begins the message format disk appears and I have no choice.
Well,for some strange reason it has decided to work, perhaps it was a couple of dodgy disks, who knows, thanks for your help though.
Not a good idea to use dvd rw as a backup storage, they are not reliable. Better to use -r or an external drive.
You are thinking of InCD in the case of Nero.Unless anyone is going to use an RW disk like a hard drive, there is no need to format disks - they will burn and allow erasing as required.In fact, when I first go a CD rewriter seven or eight years ago, I experimented with how to use it with a (then) expensive TDK CD-RW disk...:-)
