I am running a Dell XPS 8930, I7 4ghz that has a HL-DT-ST-BD-RE BU40N optical drive. The drive reads CD's, DVD's and BD's with no problem. I rarely write to these media, but I recently had to do that to transfer data to a different computer and I noticed that the format option is missing in the drop down menu when I attempt to format a CD-RW disk. Attempting to format from the Disk Manager in Computer Management was not an option as it was also missing. I was able to work around this using the command prompt as an administrator and use the format command, but that begs the question of what happened to the command in the drop down menu and how do I restore it. I would rather not do a fresh install due to the several days that I would have to spend rebuilding the system. Any ideas?
