I used IMGBURN and CDBURNERXP to work where other things didn't. If these don't work then test the erase on new media and other drives.
Be sure to know that most owners will not accept their DVDRW drive has died so be ready to demonstrate it working on another machine.
Hello All: burned files onto a dvd+rw disk with a DVR using Linux 2.6 OS. The files were decompressed .h264 to .avi with a converter & copied into my windows media player 11 program. All Ok. However, the source disk can only be read. No file delete,rename or disk format/erasing allowed. The DVR's program does not provide for disk format. Is there any way to format this disk. Running windows 2000 xp sp3 with a Teac DV-w58e DVD+rw writer. Thanks
