  2. Format Un-Writable DVD.

    Hi Roger,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    To have better clarity on the issue, please answer the below-listed questions and get back to us.

    1. Is your disc a Re-Writable DVD disc or a Writable disc?
    2. What is the name of the disk?

    A Re-Writable DVD disc is a compact disc that can be written, read arbitrarily many times, erased, and written again.

    If you are using a Re-Writable disc, then follow the below steps to erase the contents of the disk completely.

    Note: Erasing the contents of the disk will delete all the data that is present on the disk, so please backup the data before erasing the disk.

    Make sure that your drive has the ability to write DVDs, otherwise, you won't be able to erase, reformat, or write new data the disc.

    Step 1: Insert the DVD into your DVD drive and in the
    Autoplay
    dialog box, click Burn files to disk using Windows Explorer. If you don't see the dialog box, click the
    Start button, click This PC, and then double-click your DVD drive.

    Step 2: In the Burn a Disk dialog, type a name for the disk and choose a format for the DVD. There are two different formatting options for rewritable DVDs.

    • Click like a USB flash drive if you want to use the Live File System format. These discs can be played in computers, but not in most DVD players. Use this format if you want to back upfiles on your computer. Files will be burned to disc
      as you add them.
    • Click with a CD/DVD player if you want to use the Mastered format. These discs can be played in CD/DVD players, as well as in computer DVD players. Use this format if you want to playmusic or video from your DVD. Files will be burned to
      disc all at once, when you're done adding them.

    Step 4: Once you've selected your formatting method, the drive will prepare the disc. This may take a few moments. After it's finished, you'll be able to start adding files to the disc.

    Give it a shot and let us know of any changes.

    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!

    I have formated as disk but I get message to insert a writable disc. What is going wrong

    I get the insert a disk message repeatedly in Windows 10

    Hi,

    You may follow the steps provided below and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    I suggest you to insert the disk into the drive and go to disk Management, then there change the drive letter to the DVD/CD drive.


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Select Disk Management.

    • Click on Change the driver latter and path.
    If the issue persist, go to device Manager, then right click on the DVD/CD driver and click uninstall the driver and restart pc, then PC will install the driver automatically which will remove this error.

    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Select Device manager.
    • click on DVD/CD Rom driver.
    • Right click on the DVD/CD rom driver and select driver tab.
    • Click on uninstall.
    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
