Question about Computers & Internet
When trying to Burn a CD or DVD get msg. use format that Windows recognize. If disk is unformatted you need to Format it. I can not find a program that lets me format a CD or DVD. The same CD and DVD that I put on Windows XP recognize blank disk to burn.
Windows 7 does this to many drives whether it needs formatting or not.
Right click on the cd/dvd select properties see what options are available you might select customize option restore to defaults then click apply.
Hope this helps.

Are you formatting a new disk or an existing one? Keep in mind that the rest of us do not know all the details that you know unless you tell us & thus it will take much longer to resolve your issue.
You said "after you tried it with XP CD". Dont know what you mean. What program did you use the first time & what steps did you do?

Hello there. As of about 5 or so years ago, it really doesn't matter which format of blank dvd you use to burn a disk to. if the intended player is around, or definitley older than that I would check on the specs in the manual to make sure.

SOURCE: Will not read or format.
I had the same problem with a 1 gig Cruiser Micro and I did something that brought it back to life...I used the U3 Uninstaller on it even though I had already done so and it was already gone and I was then able to open the flash drive and write to it again...go figure!

I have battled this for a few days. Your mentioning USB leads me to a possible solution.
I had a 500GB drive and put it in the USB enclosure and could only see 128GB one time, 138GB another. I found that external drive enclosures have their own IDE controller chips with older ones limiting the size of the drive they are able to "see".
The best test is to internally mount the drive (perverts will read this differently than intended and risk injury due to shock!) to make sure it can be seen. If so then the next best step is to spring for a new drive enclosure, one that supports the higher capacity drive. It worked for me! My old external enclosure's IDE controller could not handle the higher capacity drive and the new one was perfectly happy with it. Good luck! - Andy C

you need a commercial program like partition magic to do this, there is no sys-built-in way.

Testimonial: "Was hoping for freeware to reformat disk, but knowing the name of a one I can purchase is very helpful. Thanks"
Tips for a great answer:
this might be the burning software program you are using
there are many freeware burning programs on the net
what sort of cd disk are trying to burn ie: data media iso........
how many disks does this happen to ? ?
the cd's you have might be a bad batch!!!
can you burn dvd's ??
BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps
