If anyone could explain why I can't format my disk, that would be great

It's DVD-R (write once) media, you can't format or erase them... or at least not in the sense you're trying to do it within ImgBurn.

My guess is all 3 failures are because they're listed as CMC MAG media.  The CD-RW and DVD-RW failed to fully erase and the DVD-R burned but failed to Verify.  Since all those media are said to be CMC MAG, your failed attempts to erase/write to CD-RW and DVD-RW are probably because they're cheap discs.  And the reason you Verify failed is probably because of the same thing.  Try something other than cheap discs.
