Simply add a file to disk

Nero 12 will not add a file to an existing DVD-RW without formatting the disk. Why? Isn't it possible to do this any more?

  • Hi Shirley-

    Unless you originally created a multi-session disc, you won't be able to write to the disc again unless what's on it is erased.

    If you been able to do this before, perhaps you can explain how you did it.

  • I have a disk which invites me to add files to it but obviously Nero doesn't recognise it because it wasn't created using Nero. Older versions of Nero used to allow extra files to be added to any RW disk. There was no need for the user to have any special skills - it was simply the way the software worked.

  • I use nothing but RW discs except in special cases because I don't regularly burn discs. I primarily burn discs to try to reproduce problems that people report here in the forum. I'm not going to spend money on -R or +R for this purpose. In all cases, when I start a new project to burn, Nero will tell me the RW disc is not empty and asks if I want to erase it.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "disk which invites me to add files". Perhaps you could explain.

    If you create a multi-session disc, you can always add files to it. It doesn't matter whether the disc is RW or any of the others. I have Nero v8-v14 and they all behave the same way. Perhaps that is what you did and just forgot.

    I don't know why Nero wouldn't recognize a disc, regardless of what software was used to create it. If you still have that disc, perhaps you wouldn't mind opening it up in Windows Explorer and providing a screenshot of its contents. I'm just interested in the way the disc is structured.

    Looking forward to your comments.
