DO I HAVE TO FORMAT DVD'S TO WRITE TO THEM?
Posted on 2004-10-12
I have a Sony DVD RW DRU-530a drive. I want to use it to back up my system to DVD-RW or DVD-R, using Acronis True Image. But when the program starts to write to the disk I always get one of these two messages : "Disk Full" or "Poor Quality Media.". I am using name-brand media, so I'm sure the discs aren't poor quality.
So I am wondering, do I have to format these DVDs before writing to them? If so, how do I format them?
