Erase/Reformat DVD-RW After Nero INCD accidently formated it.
Posted on 2004-11-19
I tried to write a DVR-RW blank with SONIC MYDVD Authoring/Burning Package, that came with the Sony 530 drive, and Nero's INCD automatically loaded itself and asked if I wanted it formated. Since this was my very first DVD write (ever) I didn't pay attention to the window name and autorized the format. Of course the MYDVD immediately reported a Bad Media error when it finally tried to write to the Sony 530 DVD writer. I tried Erase in Nero but it didn't recognize the Disk at all nor does the System Info/Disk function.
I did correctly write to another blank -RW disk so I know the Sony hardware and Sonic software works as it should. Also the Erase worked on that disk with no problem .
I have removed INCD from my system so it can't happen again...but is there any way to reformat the problem DVD-RW disk to it's original state? Thank you, Mal
