Ok here is the thing. I got my computer back in October of last year. When I got the computer I noticed I could work with cds that were already formated but for some reason I can not format new cds. Nero tells me that the disk is either damaged or not compatable. Now when I use the windows burning I have no problems.

Now if it is software here is the other confusing part of this whole deal. I have also tried Roxio cd/dvd burning and gotten the same error. I got in touch with my manufacturer and spoke to them about it and they sent me a new drive which is still giving me an issue. So I know it is not the drive, but why would I use two different programs and get the same issue? Would anyone know a good user friendly program that would work better

I have windows xp pro
1 gig of ram
and a 1.6 duo processor...

Are you using rewriteable media? That is the only type that I'm aware of that can be formatted.

What are you trying to do with these disks?
