I have Windows XP on my computer. What program do I use to erase information on a DVD+RW disk?

    I did as you recommended, but now it says that the disk is write protected and that I need to remove this before I can erase it. So, I guess now my question is how do I remove the "write protection"?

Short for DVD-ReWritable, a re-recordable DVD format similar to CD-RW or DVD+RW. The data on a DVD-RW disc can be erased and recorded over numerous times without damaging the medium. DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM are supported by Panasonic, Toshiba, Apple Computer, Hitachi, NEC, Pioneer, Samsung and Sharp. These formats are also supported by the DVD Forum.

How do i format a Cd on windows xp

1 Open your disk drive2_bing.gif. Ensure that your disk drive is empty before proceeding, some CDs, especially CD-RWs, will be erased if you skip this step.
  • Step 2 Place CD-RW into CR-R drive. The disk drive may automatically detect this is an empty or "clean" disk. If so, skip to step 4.
  • Step 3 Find the disk. Click on "Start," then "My Computer," then on "Devices with Removable Storage," and then right-click on the CD-RW icon.
  • Step 4 Format the disk. Select "Format Disk" from either the drop down menu on Step 3 or from the Dialog Box in Step 2. This process should take only a few minutes to complete. If your CD-RW has information on it already, you may select "Erase CD-RW" instead of "Format Disk."

    I can't get it to override a information on a disc or add more video to disc

    There are several types of DVD disks:
    * DVD-R -- "write-once-read-many"
    * DVD+R -- "write-once-read-many"
    * DVD-R DL -- "write-once-read-many" (dual-layer)
    * DVD+R DL -- "write-once-read-many" (dual-layer)
    * DVD-RW -- "quick-erase-then-rewritable"
    * DVD+RW -- "quick-erase-then-rewritable"

    So, there is no way to "add-later" -- once you have written, the disk is "closed" to further writing.
    The 'RW' disks can be quick-erased (takes about 60 seconds) and then you can start again to write, but that still is not the same as "add more video".

    Using Windows XP. Want to copy vidoe from Media

    Is the drive you are using a DVD writer or only a DVD reader? The drive that writes to RW disks is labeled DVD/RW or DVD Recordable.
    These are the only drive types that will read and write a DVD/RW disc.

    How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?

    You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

    Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

    To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)

    DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs

    Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

    I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..
