Hi, I recently bought a new HP pavilion computer, and it has a cd/dvd reader and a cd/dvd writer. neither of these drives will take a cartridge.
I bought and installed a new Panasonic LF-M821 DVD MULTI-FORMAT drive connected to the computer with a firewire enclosure. I am running Windows XP Pro.
I have numerous Type 1 and type 2 DVD-RAM cartridges that I have used for system backups in the past. I would like to now reformat the disks and use them for data backup. I am not able to format them as I get a message that the disks are write protected. I have learned that some software will write protect these disks.
I would like to know what I have to do in order for me to remove the “write protect” from the disks so I can reformat them with UDF formatting.
Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
