Formatting Dvd+RW ??

Recommended Posts

Ok Ive Formatted 1 Disc thanks to Cornholio7, Now what do I do once its done,?

Am I supposed to write it as well during Format?

 

After doing this, Will I need to Format all my Dvd+RW's?

The program automatically takes care of formatting / erasing if it decides it is needed.

 

It's not something you should concern yourself with.

if the dvd+rw is formatted or unformatted all you have to do is:

 

1. Insert Disc in Burner.

2. Select Image to burn.

3. Click 'Write' button.

 

no need to manually choose Erase (quick/full), correct?

if you do it that way with an unformatted disc you will see this message

if you use a disc there is already something on you see this message

I went through the format dvd thing and it didn't work. It says, "DeviceIoControl (FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME) Failed! Device:[1:1:0] PHILLIPS DVD +RW-D28 1.29 (E:) (ATA)

Unable to lock volume for exclusive access.

Reason: Access is denied.

 

 

Help please!!

If the worst comes to the worst you can always ignore the error and IB will do it's stuff anyway ! :) That said, it's best to follow the links in corny's post and work out what has a handle on your drive tho !
