Quick Format Won't Work



My hard drive recently crashed and I had to reinstall Easy Media Creator 9. In the past, it is my recollection that if I put a new CD-RW in my drive, and then clicked format, I could either select Quick Format or Full Format. I always picked Quick Format.


Now, after the reinstall, on a new CD-RW Quick Format is always greyed out. After I have done a full format (30 minutes), then Quick Format is an option. But that kind of defeats the purpose of Quick Format and quickly using a new CD-RW.


Can anyone enlighten me? Am I wrong in my recollection? Is Quick Format NEVER an option on a brand new CD-RW? I think it should be and, if so, does anyone know why this feature might not be working?

Why do you want to format the CD RW? If you use Creator Classic, or Music disc creator, or any of the EMC 9 apps except possibly drag to disc, they require an unformatted disc straight out of the box.


I advise not to use drag to disc. Packet writing is unreliable (the CDs often stop being readable after a while) and use of drag to disc is not recommended, unless perhaps for quick transfer of a file from one PC to another.

I have run into the same thing with D2D V9 and have never been able to resolve it…


Actually, if you have a legitimate use for D2D (rare in this day and age) Full Format is one step in the right direction to prevent data lose.


I have a posting, here, offering some of the things I have found with D2D.
