    formatting problems

    its ok now thanks, got everything sorted, the final hurdle was that the burner wasnt recognising that the disc i inserted was a dvd+rw. it kept saying i had a dvd-rw. So i set about changing the book type via the burners' support website. thanks anyway

    when you say "RW's" you do mean cd's? i know it maybe sounds a silly question but i am a novice! i have actually tried more than one and it happens everytime.
