I'm trying to write into a disk but it won't let me saying the disk isn't empty, i've cleared out the disk several times and nothing's working so idk what to do, the only relevent timeline is I 00:04:34 Operation Started!

I 00:04:34 Device: [0:0:0] hp DVDRW  DU8A5SHL ZH63 (E:) (SATA)
I 00:04:34 Media Type: BD-R (Disc ID: 97m26s66f)
I 00:04:34 Media Supported Write Speeds: 0.4x, 0.6x, 0.8x, 1x
I 00:04:34 Quick Erase: No
I 00:04:34 Format Properly: Yes
I 00:04:34 Format Size: Preferred
I 00:04:34 Format Without Spare Areas: Yes
I 00:04:34 Erasing Disc...
I 00:04:34 If you don't want spare areas, there's no need to format this disc!
I 00:04:34 Operation Successfully Completed! - Duration: 00:00:00
it'll only run as a BD-R but that does nothing so i don't know anymore

That certainly doesn't look like an empty disc to me.

 

Seeing as it appears to be a CD-R, you obviously can't erase anything from it either. CD-R are 'WORM' (write once, read many) media and cannot be erased like how CD-RW media can.

 

Use a new, blank disc.
