Trying to configure Retrospect with my new drive, it has turned two DVD+RD disks into CD. I have tried rebooting and erasing the DVDs with Nero 6. I can still write to them as DVDs with Nero 6, but when I look at the files in Windows Explorer, it also reports that the file system is CDFS and sees the drive as a CD. (But on startup with no media in the drive, Explorer says it’s a DVD drive.)
Even before I worry about getting Retrospect to work, I’d sure like to get my DVDs usable again as DVDs. Is there any way to do this? Nero doesn’t have any “format” command. I thought that doing a quick erase and copying new data would have that effect, but it didn’t. Still a cdfs file system.
Dantz Retrospect 6.5 Pro with Windows XP Pro, LiteOn 411s drive, Memorex 4x DVD+RW media. For other utilities, I have the PowerDVD and Sonic MyDVD that came with the drive but haven’t been installed yet. I was getting general advice from the Newbies forum before I installed them, but then this new problem occurred.
