Bad burn on DVD RW now drive wont see the disk

I was helping a friend copy some DVD’s when we messed up a RW disk.
I wanted to erase it but it isnt showing up in the drive.
I tryed with Nero, and Alcohol 120%, but both tell me to put a disk in.

Any ideas what I could try next???
I dont really need it, but it is driving me nuts that I cant blank it… :smiley:
I have a Lite-On 451s using a Serial ATA adapter on a NF7-s.
Everything works great cept for this DVD.

sounds like the disc is ruined.

What is the media code of the disk (use this free program to get the media code which is the true manufacture)?

Ricoh are good disks (one of the most common too). It’s still possible to corupt a good quality disk though (especially if it has been rewritten a lot). It should not happen very often as they are decent quality though.

I will add it to my coaster collection…heh

It is branded as Memorex, I have had good luck with Memorex disk’s.
Like I said before, it’s not a big deal, was just kinda bugging me I couldnt get it to work. Thanks for the replies… :smiley:
