    I have these Memorex DVD+RW discs, and all of them work except for this one. I use Nero and I can format it no problem, but when I go to burn it, it bombs. Is there any way to find out what the problem is? Like some other software or something? Is it just a bad disc and will never be usable even though I can format it? Does this happen alot with DVD+RW discs?

    I have had that happen to maybe 1 DVD+RW that I buy out of every 40, so yeah it happens but I haven't found a way to recover the disk yet.

    You can try a newer verison of your drive's firmware, but those Memorex DVD+RWs are crap. I've got three here and none of them work right. My other +RWs are fine.

    Its probably crap now. I hate rewritables. I always have so many problems with them. I just stick to writables now. With the price of writables thesedays, its cheaper to buy them than RW's sometimes.
