Hi

You don't need to format a cd or dvd. unless its a RW disc then it can be erased and used again, use the nero software instead or cdburnerxp http://cdburnerxp.se/ to burn your files.

Ca't read any cd, dvd anymore


try running the fix-tool provided by Microsoft on this web page

http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems

If that fails then my suspicion is that either
1) the drive has failed
or more likely
2) because you don't have any DVD burning software, windows can't understand the blank DVD-RW disk. This basic packet-burning software installed with XP CANNOT write to DVD disks.

However there is a bit more to it than that - the Microsoft CD burning software (which is a cut down Roxio product) cannot co-exist with any other packet burning software (e.g. DLA, In-CD or simuilar) so if one of those is installed you have to DISABLE the MS CD burning capability on the drive settings tab. Even worse, Internet Explorer 8 is not compatible with DLA - which is included in quite a few CD/DVD suites including many of the later Roxio versions

My advice would be
1) un-install any CD or DVD burning software on the machine
2) disable the MS CD burning
3) run that Microsoft patch
4) Install some DVD burning software but DON'T install the packet writing software part of it

Note that after installing that patch you may also have to reinstall any DVD playing software

I don't seem to be able to format er-rw cds help


Do you have dla installed? (Drive Letter Access). It was a long time ago that I last used RW disks but I seem to remember having to install a DLA driver to allow me to format or directly save / copy / delete files on the CD / DVD.

Driver compatibility problems with dvd/cd drive dell 5160


You have given very little information regarding the actual driver, I do know that there was an issue with the original Roxio DLA.

You can uninstall the DLA or Drag to Disc feature in programs and features, or install the upgrade patch as per this dell link

Can't read dvd ram disk


Well not all DVD Rom's are compatible for DVD Ram. Other problem would be the formatting. Windows XP Home and Professional can only write directly to FAT32-formatted DVD-RAM discs. For UDF-formatted discs, which are considered faster, compatible device drivers or software such as InCD or DLA are required. Windows Vista can natively access and write to both FAT32 and UDF-formatted DVD-RAM discs, however Windows Vista uses its own version of the UDF format giving compatibility problems. Vista also has issues with XP formatted FAT32 discs as Vista uses the CPRM features. Even though it is possible to use any file system one likes, only very few perform well on DVD-RAM. This is because some file systems frequently over-write data on the disc and the table of contents is contained at the start of the disc.

CD-RW/DVD ROM


On the Load Problem.. try rebooting your system. It sounds like your driver either dropped or didn't load correctly. Also, check the properties of the drive and make sure you have the DLA option checked.

On the software, windows media center, roxie, nero, any of those are good. Here are a few good free programs: http://www.avsmedia.com/DVDPlayer/index.aspx
