  1. Formating CD


    I get a message that Windows 10 cannot read the blank disc in the CD-Rom drive and says it is necessary to format the disc. The menus do not give a format option as they used to do. I've tried the regedit suggested and it did not correct the problem. I can play audio CD's and read data CD's. Can anyone give further suggestions to correct this?Herb T

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!
