Glad to hear it's solved :)

You don't need to format CD-R disks, as they can only be written to ONCE.

CD-RW on the other hand are re-writable (can be erased and used again) .. so need formatting.

A lot of ageing CD/DVD drives will have problems with CD-RW/DVD-RW (re-writable disks) as they are only half as reflective as CD-R/DVD-R/DVD+R

Thanks for marking the topic SOLVED, and hope you have a good new year too :)
