I need some help. My dvd writer has started playing up recently. Im trying to burn files on to a used DVD RW and up until two weeks ago it has been fine. As of late though, I'm having somet trouble erasing/formatting the discs.
When I erase the disc using Right-Click, format CD RW (or something like that), I get a message saying the disc has been successfully erased however when I explore the drive the files are still intact and available. [The writer is still able to read and access the files on the DVD drive]
Erasing using Nero 8 has not been of much help either. I have put two DVD+RWs in, and when it tells me taht the disc is not empty and it will erase the contents if I carry on, it starts up the burning process and after 1% an error comes up saying Write error and ejects the disc tray.
Having put DVD-RWs in (never had trouble using both formats before), unlike having the write error message, I just keep getting the message that tells me the disc is not empty and it will be erased if I carry on. After the elapsed time has passed, I keep getting the same message again saying its not empty andit will be erased if I carry on and the cycle jsut keeps going.
I dont have any blank DVD RWs anymore so I dont know whether it is just a formatting problem. However, I did try to put a DVD R disc in and that went to 3% and then just crashed that I had to reboot the computer because the disc was just spinning inside the tray and I couldnt get it out.
Deos anyone have any idea of what the problem could be?
