From your short list I have Nero InCD installed. In fact it is InCD with which I am trying to format the disks. Is there another way to format +RW DVD's?
I have also tried using DVDSanta, Nero and ImageTool Burn to write/format, but versions of the same error always arise.
When attempting to do a full erase with ImageTool Burn, it tells me it may take up to 1066 seconds and then finishes in a moment, suggesting that the disk is already erased. (In fact when I first close the drive with the +RW disk inside, up pops a Windows Explorer folder of D: which has no files on it, implying that Windows thinks this is a perfectly readable disk). But upon trying to write using ImageTool Burn the error is always:
=> Writing to disc
===> Burn process started at 4x (5,540 KB/s)
===> Start formatting disc before burning
===> Formatting disc failed
===> Invalid command
D: LITE-ON DVDRW LH-18A1P
===> Could not perform start of Disc-at-once
===> Burn process failed at 4x (5,540 KB/s)
I really appreciate your help, guys.
But again I say, What the......!?
