    Hi guys,

    I have already searched and cannot find a solution to this. I have a lot of DVD-RW+'s disks that have television recordings on them from a DVD Recorder, and I no longer need the content that's on them. When I put them in my superdrive, they mount as "DVD Recording", but the option to erase in Disk Utility is greyed out. I imagine it has something to do with the fact that when I used to use the DVD Recorder, I always had to format them first. I know that there is nothing wrong with my SD because when I place DVD RW+'s that have only been used for data on my Mac, they are able to be formatted and erased. Is there some application out there I can use to correctly format these disks, as I have about 50 or so DVD's that I don't want to just throw away.

    Thanks for your help!
