Thread: DVD-RW Erase

  1. #1
    I have a dvd-rw and i need to erase its contents. I used a program called Instant CD-DVD but it kept freezing. I tried right clicking on it in my computer and did quick format but error popped up. Does anyone know what other software i can use to erase the disk properly error free hopefully.

    Cheers

    I had a problem (caused by a combination of Nero and my pos SONY drive I think) where the disk had no free space after erasing. I've now got a later version of Nero and an NEC drive and I've managed to recover those disks.

    If that doesn't work or you haven't got Nero, try Dvdinfopro. If your drive supports it you can erase a DVD-RW back to it's original state.
