I format a write-once disc (UDF format) but it write something to it (about 137 MB) so when i try to create a system repair disc it says 'disk is not blank- erase disc', but as it is a DVD+R i cannnot erase anything on it.

What does Windows write to the Disk?

I have not a clue, but if you want to create a Repair Disk, just pop in another CD/DVD and create the disk without formatting.
