I tried to format a old (previously used, non-empty, non-Diretcd formatted) 8cm CDRW disc. My drive's LED will show red when it's writting to and yellow when it's reading from a CD. With the indication from the LED, I noticed that the write (format?) process was over in a short while (about 20 mins), and it started to say "Verifying CD...." and my drive's LED started to blink slowly. It stayed this way for 4 hrs ++. During this period, I can be sure that my PC did not hang, as I was able to perform other tasks normally.
When I patience ran out, I had to manuallby end task and reboot to take the disc out. After I rebooted, the disc is no longer recognized...:(
Can anyone tell me if the CD is still "salvageable", and how?
I was doing this in win98, 1st ed. with a liteon 8432 [LTR-0841) drive.
