    DVD-RAM udf file system problems, disc will not eject keeps spinning

    I need help with these DVD-RAM discs.
    I put in the disc, had some files, they read ok.
    I went to ERASE disc. Win10 erased disc, then gave me option to format as UDF or as DVD files.

    UDF files system is used for DVD-RAM discs. Selected UDF.
    Win10 formats disc ok. I copied files to disc. Works, disc is spinning like mad constant all the time.
    I tell it to eject disc, it says it refuses or cant eject the disc. I wait a while, disc keeps spinning as fast as possible.
    Nothing can stop the disc, will not eject...

    I stick paper click in drive, try pops open, laser light remains on, disc spindle motor continues to spin.
    I tell windows 10 to shut down, it tries, I finally pull the plug, the disc spindle motor finally stops spinning.

    On reboot windows is repairing the drive. The DVD-RAM disc I put in a linux PC, it is not formatted, unreadable.

    What can I do? For now, impossible to use these discs.

    No one knows?
    I did another test.
    I put in another DVD-RAM disc.
    I erased.
    Then I right clicked format.
    Formated ok, did not spin up fast.
    I then copied 1.8gb iso file onto the disk. It copied successfully, verified on a linux PC, however the disk drive never shut off and I could not eject the disk.
    Used paperclip to open the tray.
    I then tried to shut down the pc, it could not shutdown, screen turned off, but never did the DVD drive shut down.
    I finally had to hold in power button.
    On restart, win10 had issues, had to restart itself after 'collecting data'.

    So, it seems like dvd-ram udf discs have serious usability issues, once they load up they refuse to unload.

    I also asked this as a tech support question at MS.
