    DVD-R Help

    aff can't explain it

    I chose the format option where it acts like a USB
    I put nearly 3gb of files onto it.
    When I started it back up in normal mode and went onto my DVD there is nothing on it but instead of the 4gb free there is only 1gb free.

    When I try format it, it tells me to format the 1gb. Can I access the files I already have on it or format it so that I get all the space back?

    Acts like a USB? So you just like, opened at as if it were a drive and put files in it without any kind of burning process?

    Yep, it was a new disk. When I put it in & opened it, it asked me how I wanted to format it, like a USB where I can move files on or off or just Burn the files on.

    I've never really known that to actually work. Then again, I don't know much about CD-R's/DVD-R's in the first place. Why don't you just buy some more? You can get a whole case of 4GB CD's for like $8-14 at RadioShack.

    Because my laptop sucks & takes ages to copy the files

    I've used disks as USBs before and had no problems, Burning gives me more problems
