  1. Windows was unable to complete the format


    Hi,


    I have a "Windows 10 pro" on a "Lenovo ideapad 310"


    I am trying to format a DVD that I am using for the first time but I keep getting the message "Windows was unable to complete the format" and I've used several DVDs and I keep getting the same message.


    Any help?

    :)

    Hello Gypsy,

    If you're unable to format your SD card from File Explorer, I recommend using the
    Disk Management tool. Please make sure that you're signed in as administrator before following these steps:

    • Right-click the Start button.
    • Select Computer Management.
    • Go to Storage > Disk Management.
    • Right-click your SD card and select Format.
    • Enter the Volume label, set the File
      system, and select the check box for Perform a quick format before clicking
      OK.
    • Click OK again to complete.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Windows was unable to complete the format :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    I've tried formatting my SD card (to put in my phone) and keep getting "Windows was unable to complete format" no matter how I've tried.

    Is there a fix?
