Question about NexxTech (DRW6S160PX) Burner

Open Question

Can't erase a re-writable DVD for reusing it.

Dear Sirs:I have a Nexxtech DVD/CD Rewritable drive. It's model number is DRW 6S160PX.I am using the Nero 6 software which came with it.My problem is that I want to reuse my 'Memorex DVD+RW' DVD. It says it is 'rewritable' on the jacket.But when I use the erase feature on the Nero 6 program it makes the DVD totally unusable. Neither my computer or my Nexxtech DVD/CD Rewritable Drive will thereafter recognize that a disc is even in the slot.What can I do? Can I do a re-write without having to erase first? If so, how do I do that?If you can direct me to an online article that gives detailed instructions about this issue, that would be great!Thank you very much.I await your kind reply.

SOURCE: pROBLEM BURNING DVDS

First thing would be to test to see if you can burn a data dvd with Nero. If you can, than its not a problem with the drive. If your burner can't burn a regular data dvd, return it. If it can, then it is very likely the software you are usuing. Nero can't burn copyrighted dvds at all. If you havne't tried copying other dvds than you should definatly do that. No software, at least that I'm aware of can can copy every dvd, different dvds use different encryptions, and they are coming out with new methods it seems like all the time. I would recommend Dvd Shrink and Clone Dvd. I have not been able to copy every dvd I have, but I have been able to backup the ones I really need backuped.

You cannot edit files *directly* on the CD/DVD. CD-RW and DVD-RW means you can "erase and re-burn" a cd or dvd, and reuse them like they were new.

You CAN however, just copy the files from the CD onto the hard drive and work from there. If you did that, sometimes files that are copied from a CD to the computer get copied with their "Read Only" flag set.

To undo that, in windows explorer, select the offending files that are on your HARD DRIVE, right click and go to Properties.

Uncheck "Read Only"

Click OK.

Now your files should be editable.

Again I emphasize that you cannot edit files directly on the CD or DVD. You can copy them to your computer, edit and change them as you see fit, and then re-burn the cd or dvd.

that hard drive may not be compatible with the new computer..the parameters may be wrong and wont allow it to use or trasnfer data from it onto the new computer.trying to interchange drives depends on compatibility issues and it sounds as though the one you are trying to use is simply not compatible to the new system

How to erase a dvd dics


dvd are read only.
dvd-r; dvd+r and dvd-rw are the re-writeable discs. mostly once only.

DVD Media Formats Explained
There are many different types of writable and rewritable DVD media on the market today. These formats include:
There are also "General Purpose" and "Authoring" discs. DO NOT confuse the "Authoring" media with the term for content development (making / editing what eventually goes on the DVD). The most common type of DVDR is the General Purpose type - if you do not know that you have an actual authoring recorder drive then you most likely have the general purpose type.

DVD-R is a write-once recordable format which allows excellent compatibility with both standalone DVD-video players and DVD-ROM drives. There are two main types of 4.7GB DVD-R discs: DVD-R for General Use and DVD-R for Authoring. Most consumer drives use the former cheaper General Use discs, while many higher end professional drives use Authoring discs. The correct media type appropriate for the drive must be used when burning. However, once burned, the discs should be able to be read in either drive type. (General Use DVD-Rs are designed to prevent backup of encrypted commercial DVDs).

DVD-RW uses rewritable discs which are rated at more than 1000 rewrites in ideal situations. Unfortunately, DVD-RW does not enjoy the same excellent compatibility with DVD-ROM drives and standalone DVD-Video players that DVD-R enjoys. Another drawback is that unlike DVD-RAM, one must generally erase a DVD-RW disc before reuse.

Most DVD-RW drives should also be able to record to DVD-R. However, the reverse is not true. Many older and some current DVD-R drives are not capable of writing to DVD-RW discs (but may be able to read burned DVD-RW discs). Some drives can also record to CD-R and CD-RW.

Currently DVD-RW and DVD-R are most popular in the multimedia market as well as the general consumer market. For instance the Apple SuperDrive, found in higher end Mac computers used in multimedia creation, is simply a DVD-R/DVD-RW (and CD-R/CD-RW) capable drive.

DVD+RW, like DVD-RW, is a rewritable 4.7GB DVD format. DVD+RW, however, in some ways offers some technical advantages, which for example include: lossless linking (which in turn more readily allows editing of a disc's contents after an initial write while maintaining integrity of the remaining data), currently slightly faster recording speeds, and optional future Mount Rainier drag-and-drop file access support (also known as DVD+MRW). However, DVD+RW does not have the very high compatibility with standalone DVD-video players and DVD-ROM drives that the DVD-R format enjoys. The level of compatibility of DVD+RW is said to be similar to that of DVD-RW. Also, DVD+RW does not currently have the same level of market acceptance as DVD-R.

DVD+R is a format that only was introduced to the public very recently (early 2002). DVD+R is a write-once 4.7GB format which promises to dramatically increase the compatibility with standalone DVD-Video players and DVD-ROM drives. Whether that claim is fulfilled remains to be seen, but initial reports have been very positive. It must be noted, however, that 1st generation DVD+RW drives do not support DVD+R burning, and it is likely that most cannot be upgraded to do so either. If one wishes to have DVD+R burning functionality, one must purchase a newer drive specifically designed to do so. DVD+R discs currently are somewhat more expensive than DVD-R discs, but prices will likely drop with time. Burners that write to these discs is the HPDVD100i and the DVD-Writer DVD200i drive

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. The CD is not a Rewritable disk you can only burn once. If you need a DVD or CD that can be rewrite or erase look for DVD-RW or CD-RW.

Which dvd disks do I buy to burn a dvd on my optiarc dvd rw ad 7563a ATA Can I add later batches of pictures? can I reuse the DVD disks?


DVD media has several types:

* DVD-R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD+R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD-RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD+RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD dual-layer ("write-once-read-many")

Some CD/DVD-writing software allows multiple "sessions" (write a bunch of files, do not "close" the disk, much later write a bunch of files), so that you can "add" files to an "open" ("non-closed") CD/DVD disk.

How to format dvd-rw 1.4GB


There's no need to "format" any rewritable CD/DVD media.

The CD/DVD-writing software that came with your computer (Nero, Roxio, et cetera) has a "quick-erase" option, that takes less than two minutes to "erase" a rewritable disk.

By the way, a DVD holds 4.7GB, not just 1.4GB.

How do i format a write protected cd


If it is write-protected, then it is a CD-R or DVD-writable that has been written on -- once written, you cannot "format" it, nor "erase" any files.
Such is the "design" of "write-once" disks.

If it is a CD-RW or a DVD-RW, then you can "erase" the disk, because it has been designed to be "rewritable".
