Cannot erase DVD+RW

Hi all,

I have a DVD+RW that I used before and there were no problems erasing and reusing it... But now I cannot erase the medium any more with any burning software that I have tried...
Is there a way to force the burner (Aopen in this case) to erase the +RW medium? Do other people have problems with this?

Cheers and thanx in advance.

Well, I have two DVD+RW discs that will not erase! I have tried to erase them in two different burners (AOpen and HP) but no chance...

I think they are going to see the inside of my garbage bin .

Thanx for your help giovanni42104.

Cheers,
Steff

What's on the discs, and what happens when you try to erase them in Nero?

I think you have a bad disc. Please try using a different DVD+RW media.

I'll have to guess what's on the disc, is it packet-writen?
Try using DVDinfoPro to erase it, it's free.

Thanx for the replies guys...

Nope, no pocket writing.
It is a video DVD writen with Pinnacle Edition 5. Even Edition cannot erase the two discs that I have used.

Oh yeah, I have tried DVDinfoPro... no luck there. I have never seen anything like this!!!

Well, as a last resort you can leave the disc in the sunlight for 30 min or so, be sure it doesn't get too hot.

I had a similar thing with a disc that I used with Nero for a speed test, can't delete the files, but I haven't finished playing with it yet to see if I can see what the problem is.

It has worked for others, but it's a fix it or break it solution.

There's a lot of this going around with DVD RW discs, and the solution is often to uninstall any packet writing software.

Well, I am sad to say that nothing happened, nothing at all! The DVD-RW is still readable and uneraseable

Have you tried removing all traces of any packet-writing software?

I know you said you don't use them, but I wanted to be sure you had fully removed any trace of them. this has been a common problem with DVDRW, and removing them is often the solution.

Try leaving them in the sun a bit longer.....nothing to lose right?
