FAQ/054 OQAR - PN/D52000-XXXXX: Are there any formatting requirements for MO disks used in the OQAR?
August 18, 2014
If the MO disk has not previously been used in an OQAR (e.g. if it is new), it should first be Low-Level Formatted, using the software provided by the manufacturer of your PC-based MO drive.
If the disk has already been successfully used in an OQAR for recording data, further Low-Level Formatting is not required.
To obtain more information on Low-Level Formatting, go to PS1231 (OQAR BAD MEDIA Message).
