#1

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.

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

I have heard of off name rw media getting corupted pretty easily.

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:
