Solved Why can I not format the same type of cd's in win 10

Specs: Windows 10
Using Disk Management in Windows 10, I cannot format all the same cd's from the same batch.
This is just one of the many problems with this edition. It is an absolutely horrendous programme. Microsoft do not want to know. I have 'Chatted' with them 7 times this week and each time it has been ended or disconnected. None were of any help at all.

Are these cdr or cdrw?

If the former (cdr) then they will be formattd automatically during recording/burner process.

There is a free burner utility which many find superior to what's included in win-10.

cdburnerXP - which is fully compatible with all versions windows from XP onwards.

From a few observations - here and elsewhere... ` it seems that "some" pholks do find problems with the burner software included in win-10.

cdburnerXP is known to work perfectly - and it's free!

Incidentally occasionally I have had problems with"some Verbatimn" disks - CDR... One batch is fine, and other appearing to have a few "duds"; and similarly with Sony... This across for different makes/models of CD/DVD burner; and also in particular with one Mac compatible software burner utility...

I'd download/install the cdburnerXP and give it a try; you've nothing to lose?

As always with anything downloaded off the web, instal it using the manual/custom option - NOT the default/proffered automatic. Watch for and uncheck all pre checked boxes apart from the one for the utility itself. That way you avoid installing all manner of unwanted stuff, systems/browser add ons and changes; a lot of which are a true PIA to eradicate.
