How to erase DVD+RW media for SONY RDR-HX910

Sorry if this is a repeat, I’m new on this forum

I am wondering how to erase or format DVD+RW discs previously recorded (or erased using NERO 6) on my PC (SONY DRU-710), for use on my SONY RDR-HX910 recorder ?

When I insert a DVD+RW disc containing video (burned on my PC), I can play the movie on the HX910, but the format option is not available (any other “disc info” field is empty); when I erase the disc using NERO 6, the HX910 says that it can not read the disc (and hence, not format it).

Is this a problem with my unit, or is it required to use truly blank DVD+RW media (i.e. media that has never been previously written in a computer DVD+RW drive) ? Or is there any other method to properly erase my DVD+RW for use in the HX910 ?

Try full erase on Nero, rather than quick erase.

Have the same problem. Tested the DVD+RW on an other RDR-HX710 and also there I can’t format the disc. Tested the same DVD+RW on a RDR-GX210 and there was no problem to format the disc. But after formatting it on that machine it still doesn’t work on the RDR-HX710. I’ve asked sony support for a solution but they can’t help me… So I’m also waiting for a solution

Found a solution!
With Nero CD/DVD speed select erase disc. Then select format disc.
Now I can use the DVD+RW again on my RDR-HX710

I have Nero 6 as well, but I use Alcohol 120% to erase the +RW and never had a problem with them

Hiya,

I have an HX910 and have exact same problem. Because I use both the dvdr and the PC for recording and watching TV, I’ve ended up having to mark my CDRWs as PC or DVDR so’s I don’t end up with all my CDRWs unusable in the HX910! What a pain. Have tried erasing short and long using Nero on the PC but still no luck. I’m trolling the Internet now and wll get back if I discover anything.
Steve.

Try format mode on Sony

Same problem with GX210 recorder.it will not erase or reformat high speed media- completely destroys them - stick to max 4x rw & use format mode

without too much technical knowledge just how do you erase a RW DVD so that you can again copy movies.
I have the Next copy Ultimate edition can this be used

I’ve been having this problem for a few years now, and finally got sick of tossing DVD+/-RW’s because of this. :a

Using alcohol120% to erase didnt help for me, but joske666’s suggestion works :bow:

If you have Nero installed, open Nero DiscSpeed, in the menu click extra>erase disc, then click the format button

takes less than a minute to complete, and it works! :clap:
