I am using Windows XP and I am trying to format a DVD-RW disk. However, when I highlight the drive in Windows Explorer and right click my mouse, the Format option is not listed.

What do I have to do the get it listed?

Thank you!
Win XP does not have a dvd / dvd-rw burning option, it will only burn to cdr / cdr-rw.

The only time you need to format a dvd-rw disk is if you use packet writing software like inCD.

In normal burning use you just need to erase the disk when it gets full using Nero or some other burning software...
