I have just bought a new laptop that came with a new DVD writer, I thought it would be a good option especially for backing up information. I have since been messing around with the drive trying to record Blank DVD RAM's, but I'm having a few problems, first of all I keep getting asked to insert a blank disc even though the discs are already blank, is there anyway to format them or something like that?? The type of DVD drive is a Matshita DVD RAM UJ-815A, I'm beginning to think it is what it sounds like. I guess from the DVD RAM bit that there is no way I can use a different format, or at least get discs with more space??
