I've joined what seems to be a host of computer users who are unable to complete the format of a DVD.
My computer is a Dell 1721 laptop. Occasionally a DVD format works, but most of the time I end up with "Windows was unable to complete the format", or the format appears to work, but, when I try to record from my Panasonic Viera TV, I get a display on the DVD player "Unsupport", which I take to mean that the disc is not formatted.
I've seen so much on the WEB about this kind of problem that its hard to know where to begin looking for an answer. Does anyone out there know of a simple solution?
