    Exclamation Windows Live File System, DVD not working?

    Problem is, I burn a DVD+R using the Windows Live File System (WLFS). It works for a few days, then all of a sudden, it stops working (no files seen, but capacity is noticed as used), asks me to re-format. I have a LG DVD-RAM drive (IDE). BUT, the DVD still works fine in Win XP to see the files and burn new ones with WLFS? What can cause this to happen?

    It happens on my Desktop running Vista. Just wondering why it would happen that it would stop working in Vista and not in XP.

    OK, read the link, and feel like an noob. I was deleting files off the DVD+R and hence the problems. I was corrupting the disc. Now that I know what I was doing, I know what to avoid. Thanks all for the help.

    Glad you got it figured out, KitRae. I never liked the live file system; it would always bork at some point. I much prefer USB drives for storing files (aside from the big backups I keep on my external drive).

    yeah WLFS is quite complicated type, but one thing is there, the disc written in that format have very fast accessing capabilites as compared to other formats....

    I am just going to use my 95GB HDD as my back-up. LOL Was just a spare until I connected it to my IDE finally. LOL, poor paperweight too.
