    formatting dvd wondows 10

    Is it a DVD-RW or just a writable DVD? If it isn't RW you can't format it to reuse it

    Write Protected DVD-RW, can't format

    Are you able to write to CD disks?
    Have you ever written to DVDs before, using this drive? Using the same DVDs?
    The disks might not be compatible with the drive.
    Are you absolutely sure they are erasable disks ?
