Question about Computers & Internet

I used the 'quick format' feature on my PC to erase my DVD+RW's and now my DVR won't recognize them. I didn't realize the format would be changed when I did this. Is there a free program I can use to reformat them to ISO instead of UDF?? Thanks!!

    I just need to reformat these disks in the ISO format, I don't see a formatting option with these programs?

    Hi there, I need to ISO format these disks -- I don't need to record any shows or data to them

    Thanks!!

  • Nadamamasboy Feb 05, 2010

    Thanks for that info. I tried it and did the full erase but it didn't format the disk. I've gone through all the options and can't find anything on formatting, and there is nothing about formatting in the help menu.

    Any other ideas??

    Thanks again,
    Keith

Hello,

There is an application called Power ISO which you can use.
It is an application for sale (shareware) but you can use it fro free, unregistered and it will still work just as good, and all the functions, including formatting erasing DVD+RWs and burning to ISO image files.

Follow this link below for a direct download.

Go to the website for the DVD Maker and download the latest drivers.

PROBLEM READING RE-FORMATTED DVD+RW Using Windows Vista, I erase DVD+RWs. When I do, my DVR and my DVD Player won't read them, saying ''no disc''. Benhoward184


I would check your media you are buying ....common problem in "cheap" dvd+RW media.

Another option: buy a eye cleaning disk from BB or anywhere else and run the software....a dirty laser and easily cause media "mess-ups."

Won't work with the same kind of discs i've used before


I not sure as to which type of Discs that you are refering to (ie DVD+R or DVD+RW). This player will only recognize 4x (max) DVD+RW and 8x (max) DVR+R discs. If the DVD+R Disc is 16x, the DVD recorder will not recognize it once you start to record. The player will read the blank Disc and give the impression that it will record on it. I have noticed that when a 16x speed Disc is in the Drive, The recordable hours for the disc seems to double. The normal 6 Hour recording length comes up as 12 Hours when you hit the info button. Since the 8x Speed (max) discs are not available any longer, I found it best to use the DVD+RW 4x Discs and make it compatible. I then copy the compatible DVD+RW disc to a 16X DVD+R disc using my computer DVD burner. The DVD+RW disc can then be erased so that it can be reused.

My drive is listed as DVD-RW-DVR-lllD, but when I put a DVD disk into it, it changes automatic to CD-RW Drive E. How do I keep it as a DVD burner?


Try burning a disk, and taking the burnt disk to another computer, to see if the other computer recognizes the media as being a DVD disk.

Powerbook will not read or write a fresh dvd-rw


You cannot write onto a dvd-rw that has been formatted for Windows using a Mac Superdrive. Most likely, when you put the dvd-rw into a Windows machine w/Visa, you erased it, but actually it formatted the disc for Fat32 or other Windows format. Mac's are often brand-sensitive often when it comes to DVD. I've had luck with Memorex and HP, or Apple has their own which will work (from an Apple Store or Best Buy.)

Can't record anything....dvr won't recognize blank


Not sure, but could be as simple as switching to a dvd-rw disc. Not all recorders recognize all formats.

DVD+RW compatibility


your dvd only writes to dvd-r and dvd-rw, but writes to both cdr + and - r/rw. To confirm it go into nero tools and nero info tools and all the ticks in the boxes are what your drive supports
