    I think I am missing something.

    How do I go about deleting files on a -RW recorded in VR mode and also deleting files on a -RW recorded in VIDEO mode?

    I've resorted to formating the disk every time, but I don't think I should have to do it.

    I tried erasing the disks on my PC, but then when I put the disks in the JVC, it wants to format them.

    I think you have to format the disc every time you want to use it on the JVC because it wants to know what kind of disc it has to deal with (video or VR). I may be missing something too though lol.

    The JVC must format the disc to use it. "Format" does not mean "blank".

  4. My friend has a stand alone burner and when he finalizes he cannot use the rw unless he gives it to me and I erase with my pc burner using nero.

    But the discs were formatted by the JVC already; one in VR mode and one in VIDEO mode. Then programs recorded on the discs. After transfering the files to my PC, I want to re-use the discs by just deleting the files but keeping the VR and VIDEO mode formating.

    My question is whether there is a way to delete the files without having to format the discs again. For example, with a floppy disk, you have to format it first to use it, but then you can copy files to and delete files from the floppy repeatedly without ever having to format it again. Is this scenario possible with the JVC?

    when you delete the stuff you recorded on the disc I'm assuming it's still recognized by the JVC, is it not? If so try unfinalizing it (it's in the same setting menu as finalize) and see if it lets you use the disc without reformatting it.

    that's my problem, I don't know how to delete the files

    and I also don't see an Unfinalize option; I have FORMAT and FINALIZE

    oh well I meant delete the files on the computer. No way to do that on the JVC (as far as I know) unless you reformat.

    As for the unfinalize option, I definitely have it. I should add that mine is a DM-R20 (10+ 80GB HDD). Can anybody owing a 10 check if they see unfinalize in their disc setting menu?

    Right. I've never used edit->delete on a disc but that should work.

    since I don't have my remote here at work with me I'll have to go home and then figure out if Navigation is a button on remote or if Navigation is something else. SIGH.
