I recently bought a Princo DVD-R/W disc and the first time I used it something failed before the end of the burn (Using Nero).
Now when I place the disc in it flashes the drive LED for about 3-5 minutes.
When I ask Record Now Max to erase the disc it says it is not a R/W disc and ejects it. I asked Nero to erase it, it comes up with the erase dialog box and looks like it is erasing even turns the drive LED red. About 1 minute into it the erase the drive LED starts flashing green and tells me it is not an erasable disc.
Is there a program or a way to force the erasure of this disc?
I have had a similar problem in the past with CD R/W (on other CD R/W drives) but managed to do a full erase by finding other burning programs that did a better job of erasing the media.
My drive is a Lite-On LDW-411S.
Windows XP SP1.
I read the MS Knowledge base on erasing CD R/W could I do the same with a DVD?
