put_ForceOverwrite doesn't work on XP or Vista RRS feed

  • Question


    It seems that the put_ForceOverWrite method doesn't work on Windows XP or Vista. I started developing my app on Windows 7, where I had initially run into the E_IMAPI_DF2DATA_INVALID_MEDIA_STATE when trying to overwrite a DVD+RW. Calling put_ForceOverWrite fixed the problem on Win7, but not so on Vista and now a QA has reported the same issue on XP.

    Is this a known issue? And/or is there a work around? The only way I've been able to get my app to write discs that contain data is to manually erase them first, but with a DVD+RW I shouldn't have to do that.

    Any suggestions?
