You don't format CD'S, and if and only if you have a cd-rw, you just erase
(delete) the data that is on it off.

If you do format it, it probably won't work anymore.

CD- you can only write to it one time,and that's it.

CD -RW you can erase and re write.

You format a hard drive when you install a operating system, or you format a flash drive from FAT to NTFS

If you burn it with windows, you might see windows say formatting,
but you don't do it.

If the disk is a CD-RW [a rewritable disk] the burning software you use will have a utility that will allow you to format it to prepare for new data to be written to it. Standard blank CD's are burn once.

Your model can playback Video/CD/CD-R/CD-RW/VCD/DVD-R in formats JPEG, Audio CD, MP3, WMA and DIVX. Not all codecs and formats are supported. Please review the manual for supported formats:

If your video file format is not supported then you will need to first convert to an accepted format and codec.

How do I format a dvd disc


You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this:
See alsoFormat a CD or DVD


Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.

  1. Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.

  3. In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.

  4. Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:

    • Live File System

    • Mastered

  5. Click Next to prepare the disc.

    Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.

I have Mavica CD-350. All of a sudden when I attempt to format a new disc or re-format over an old one, the format process gets to the end and then beeps with the message "format error" After...


The camera may display a FORMAT ERROR if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted on a computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is not supported by the camera.
Please make sure that you're using either CD -R disc which does not require formatting or CD -RW disc.
If you're using any other discs like CD +RW, CD+R may arise the error message.
If the issue persists with a new different CD -R disc, service may be required for the Camera.

Cd/dvd isnt recognized in windows xp


There are many compatibility issues still with CD/DVD formats and disk drive manufacturer's.
Check the format of the disk (CD-RW, CD+RW, etc...)
Sounds like the drive isn't recognizing the format this disk was written in. Google CD/DVD format types for a better understanding.

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)

Rover 25 CD player wont play MP3 format discs


It sounds like your Rover dosn't have MP3 capabilities. You will have to use standard audio CD format (not data/MP3 format). You will only be able to burn about 15-20 songs but they will play in any cd player.

Want to play cd on old cd player


If you want an old CD Player to play a disc burnt on a PC, the file format has to me .wav. Most burning software will convert other formats to .wav files.

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file,
