✔ Best Answer
First understand that a "Write Once" disc like a DVD+R can be formatted only once.

You need a DVD+RW disc or a DVD-RW disc if you want to format it more than once.

You really shouldn't be formatting it at all. You can still do multisession writing to the disc without being formatted although I would not suggest it. In my opinion, I have seen many people loose files when the multisession goes bad.

Discs are cheap, write to it once and be done with it.
