Sould help you discover what to do... Some burner software will offer to format a disk if it's detected as not being formatted; I think Nero or Roxy used to do that inthe past?

Most optical-burner software (including whatever Microsoft may include) doesn't need to format a disc (CD-R/DVD-R/DVD+R) before burning (unless it's a re-writable disc). Don't have Windows 8, but in Win7 you just copy and paste to the CD/DVD drive and then "Write these files to disc"

One of your tags is 'cd-rom'. Of course you can't burn a disk in a cdrom. They're read only. 'CD rom' is often casually used to describe any optical drive so maybe that's how you were using it. Still you need to make sure you actually have a burner.
