If it's CD-R disc and you've already formatted it once or filled it up with data, then you can't format it again.. Generally, it's not best practice to format CD-R discs, but it is possible.. Still, since they are only "write once" discs, an error will normally be thrown if you try to format it a second time, especially if you've writtent data to it... On the other hand, you can format CD-RW discs multiple times.
Hope this helps.
I have a dell optiplex 655, and roxio easy cd creator 6. I am trying to format my cd, and get this error after I hit "format cd":
"Format operation on drive E:/ failed: There was a communication error while sending a command to the drive. "
Does anyone know what the problem might be? i tried messing with the speeds, and nothing.
