DVD R disks can only be written to once, so there is no question of reformatting them. Luckily they are very cheap.

mmm - Were these copies of region coded disks; and if so how did you set about copying them? What happens when you try to play them; and does the DVD drive play other disks OK?

DVD-Rs & CD-Rs can't be reformatted. Maybe you need a different video playback program. Try VLC Player.

In any event reformat is not what you want (even if it were achievable) as it is destructive.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
