formaating a dvd disc

Recommended Posts

i am trying to burn to a dvd disk

The disk is a verbatim dvd+rw 4x

verbatim #43228 0707-02

 

win xp service pack 2

 

 

 

the device is a TSST corp DVD+-RW TS-L632D DE03 (ATA)

 

Every time place a blank unused DVD into the drive I am informed it needs formatting

it starts to format to 100% but then says its earaing disk i waited for 1 hour then stopped the

program.

If the drive supports the media properly, it should take the same time as it does to burn the full disc - because that's basically what the drive is doing.

 

The first part is a very basic bit the drive does (with % 0 - 100) before then going off to do the proper format (with another % 0 - 100). That's why you see it count up twice.
