    Unable to format BD-RE 50GB

    Worked like a champ. I don't even want to think about all the DVD+RW discs that I threw in the trash over this. Thanks again!!

    Unable to format BD-RE 50GB

    FINALLY!! I think I found it. Will report when the burn is complete. (Yes, it formatted and is burning) Alcohol 120% has a option under emulation called "Ignore Media Type", this needs to be deselected! The purpose of this menu option is this, "forces software to ignore writable media type, allowing it to be recognized as CD-ROM and DVD-ROM media." Well guess what?! It works with BD-RE media as well. Great for game disc emulation, bad for rewritable media. Son of a gun!! Add this to the FAQ. Thanks for the lead LIGHTNING UK!

    I'll check into the Alcohol 120% issue, I do have that installed.

    Unable to format BD-RE 50GB

    As a new member of this forum I've been doing a lot of reading trying to get up to speed on this particular problem. I too have a BD-RE disc that I have written to one time that I cannot erase or copy over. This is terribly annoying. I paid the equivalent of 18 Euros for it. The drive I'm working with is a external USB 2.0 Buffalo BRHC-66316U2-US. This is basically just the enclosure for a LG GGW-H20N drive. I was able to write to the disc once successfully. It played in the PS3 swimmingly. However, when I tried to erase it, ImgBurn and Nero both said it was a BD-ROM and could not be erased. I have tried everything I've read in this thread to get the drive to recognize this disc as a BD-RE without success. My question is this, is it possible to instruct (add code to) the program to write to the disc despite the fact that it's reporting as BD-ROM. I realize this is a dangerous proposition and would have to be accompanied by massive red flags and warning messages when selecting this option (if it were to be made available.) Here is what the device reports when I insert this disc HL-DT-ST BD-RE GGW-H20N XJ03 (USB) Current Profile: BD-ROM Disc Information: Status: Complete Erasable: No Sessions: 1 Sectors: 12,219,392 Size: 25,025,314,816 bytes Time: 2715:27:17 (MM:SS:FF) Supported Write Speeds: 2x TOC Information: Session 1... (LBA: 0) -> Track 01 (Mode 1, LBA: 0 - 12219391) -> LeadOut (LBA: 12219392) BD Disc Information: Disc ID: SONY-ES1-01 Disc Type: BD-RE When I try to write to the disc I get the "Disc Not Empty" error. I have tried both a quick format and a full format of this disc without success. It always shows as BD-ROM in the report. Any help you could offer in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
