    Hello,

    I have a working dvd drive, all other dvd's work and they all pop up.

    I am using ubuntu, and when I pop in my dvd it does not work or say anything but I can hear the disk spinning.
    It works fine with other discs though,

    so how do I fix the corrupt disk? It says I have not put in a disk (it is RW) and it wont let me open it to format.

    I am using ubuntu and I need to format the corrupted disk because I cancelled a burn operation in the middle of it.

    likely the firmware of the drive needs update.. or disk is defective.
    sometimes its the upper/lower filters.

    It is most likely the disk, so how do i format a corrupted disk when It wont show in the drive? my other disks work fine in the drive.
