Clean CD ~ E:/ Drive ~ Disk is not formatted?
« on: May 19, 2009, 10:57:16 PM »
Ok, I'm doing a school project. I got a CD from a store and then wrote what it was on the CD. Then I inserted it into the computer. When I clicked it, it said something about "Disk is not formatted" (See picture below). Anyways, I need to get it on the CD.

CD Information:
Imation
CD-R 1x-52x
COMPACT disc Recordable
700MB, 80min

Can you help me here?

It isn't saying it isn't formatted but that it might be in a format that is not compatible with windows, either that or it is corrupt.

So you will have to go back to where you got it from and check it out there.

Plonker, you don't know where you got it from ::)

If you aren't going to respond in this immature way (I know your only a kid) then don't bother asking for help and we won't wast our time trying to help.

Firstly use Image Burn to fully & not quick, format it & than burn the files using it.

Don't use any other programs like Nero.

Hope that helps.
