Downloaded windows home premium 7 two days ago from vista, have been trying to create a image and backup dvd from the backup and restore file. It will not format the disks. The disk will stay in the reader for 10 minutes or more and then give me a message that states the format was not a sucess.
I have tried this several times and get the same result every time. It will burn music cd's etc but it will not format dvd'd or cd's for data. Am I doing something wrong? Vista worked fine when I was using it.
