Hi SAS, what is the MID code of your RWs? What drives and software do you use?

hi pepst,

the media mid is ricohjpn w21 (and its philips not tdk sorry). my drivers are a benq 1620pro and a liteon 1653s (was a sony but flashed it)
software: nero, dvd decryptor, poweriso (gives u erase function).

i went to my uncles last night and they formatted np on his machine.

I would be inclined to point the finger at PowerISO.

But try something like Verbatim before going that route.

Reason I say this, is I know Alcohol and Daemon Tools can cause similar problems - due to the fact that they can recognise writable discs as -ROM, and thus not writable.

I agree with Arachne, it certainly sounds like a software problem.

Are you using Nero InCD to format the discs? Can you give us the version number and a screenshot showing the error message?
