Erasing closed DVD+RW

Recommended Posts

I seem to have created an empty DVD+RW which has one closed session with no data. I have tried both a full and quick erase on my NEC 3500 (in a USB case), but the end result is that the disk stays closed so I cannot write more data to it. Is there any way to totally wipe the disk so it shows up as "empty" instead of closed? I also tried erasing the disk using 'burnatonce' with no luck.

Yes, I tried burning to it with both CDBurnerXP Pro and burnatonce. Both failed, with CDBXP Pro telling me the media was not empty and burnatonce saying something along the lines of no compatible media for the project being found. That is why I thought the closed session was causing a problem.
