    Erasing a DVD +RW disc hangs

    The GT80N was a replacement of the original Samsung SN-208 DVD writer in the laptop. I suspect Windows to play a part in the problems with the DVD Writer. A year or two ago I could not read or write any DVD or CD on the laptop. The drivers were the latest from Toshiba. I did not bother to investigate further and all the work on the desktop. The SN-208 was replaced by the GT80N. With this project I tried to burn the test DVDs on the laptop again as it was more convenient. And miraculously it worked until this incident. I still had 1 Verbatim DVD/ROM . I burned it in the HP desktop with the LG Writer. I ran flawlessly and I am handing it to the person tonight. It was for a community project, so I am happy that it ended well. Thank you for the assistance. I will keep your advice in mind when I get another pack of DVDs.

    No, this PC has a LG drive. The first PC was a laptop, the second a desktop. Both running Windows 10 Pro.

    Erasing a DVD +RW disc hangs

    I will try to get another manufacturer, but it is not easy. This box was labelled HP... I brutally terminated the ImgBurn session and erased the disc on another PC with the Windows Erase. Now I am burning it with the same version of ImgBurn on the second PC. About 75% done and looking good. Once the QC of the disc layout is OK, I will burn the video to a DVD ROM, possibly a Verbatim if I can find some. I liked the Verbatim discs, but will see what comes out of the stack when I get some.
  4. I tested a video DVD layout on a DVD+RW disc and made some changes to the layout. Then I tried to erase the DVD to burn the new layout. Everything went well and ImgBurn starts the erase procedure. It is now 2 hours and the erase stands at 0%.
