View Full Version : Formating CD-RW?

06-04-2002, 08:01 AM
How long does it take to format a cd-rw. I've being using Adaptec DirectCD to format my CD-RW but when there are no more boxes the formating is still going on why is this?
Is there another way to format cd-rw?

To do a quick erase, it takes me less than 5 minutes with an 8x RW. For a full erase, it's about 20.
