I am trying to copy files to a dvd writeable disc but it is showing 0mgb available so I think I need to formatt it - how do I do this please


Hi,
I'll be gladly to answer your question. Once you have inserted your DVD Rewriteable in your DVD-ROM. Please go to Start, then click My Computer. Now right click the DVD icon on the My Computer window. It will give you options and choose Format. Then the Format window will show up. Please put a tick mark on Quick Format and click Start. Once its done, right click the DVD icon and select Properties to check the capacity of the DVD Rewriteable.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!

How do I format a dvd rw disc


If you put this in your computer, then go to the My Computer icon on your desktop, you should see the disk there. Right click it, then do one of two things.
Go to properties, then search through the tabs for the Format option.
Simply click the Format button that appears.
I do not know what OS you are running, so I cannot be sure which one you will need to do. Either way, it's not as if it would take too long to do both. Hope this helps!

My dvd writer no reading or writing


hi there,

Does the light flash on the front when a disc is inserted or have you recently installed it as a Primary/Secondary optical drive? Plus, just as a matter of interest it will only read DVD's & read/write CD's.

Your problem could be down to a number of causes including a corrupt driver, where you will have to uninstall the driver by going into Device Manager, clicking the + sign in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives,' right clicking on the Optical Drive in question, clicking properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced).

This will remove a corrupt driver & when you restart your system the Hardware Manager will recognise the said Combo Drive & reinstall the driver.

If it is only unable to read DVD''s then you may require the necessary Codecs for your preferred Media Player, to support various file formats. I wish you the best of luck.

Kindest regards

Please insert a disk into drive


You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD player.
