If you are having difficulty formatting CD-RW media for recording purposes, try

speeds at 2X or lower.
See the Help or documentation that came with your CD or DVD recording

Your DVD-RW drive does not support high-speed writing to a CD-RW media. Verify
that your CD-RW media supports writing speeds of 2X or lower.
Why doesn't my optical drive (CD-RW) record to CD-RW media?

higher) for maximum performance and compatibility.
