Hi, I can save pictures to my DVDs but can't delete them. The discs are re-writable and I can erase them using my wife's lap top (vista) but the pc (xp) refuses to perform.
Welcome to the forum
Are you trying to erase (or format) the whole disc, or just individual files from it?
What burning software are you using?
We saved a folder of about 40 photos on the DVD - just to practice - and then tried to erase them all by clicking on the “erase this disc” command.
Sorry, but I’m a complete beginner & don’t know which software I’m using. - how do I find out?
Sounds like he’s using explorer in XP to do it, that wont work. you can use imgburn to erase the entire disc. Not sure about Vista, as I don’t use it.
Yeah , I would also recommend using an designated burn tool to do this task. Nero is what i use.
My suggestion is to not use at all a rewritable DVD for this. If you need a rewritable medium I suggest to use an USB pendrive. It is safer and no software is needed to write them
