I just started using a CD burner, problem is that when I go back to add more info it says "Read only"....another question, can I also delete and add more to these disks or is it a 1 time thing?
Ken,kenneth2k1 said:If you burn on CD-R, it's a one and done thing. A CD-RW can be recorded over a few thousand times. However if you want to continue to add files once it has been burned on a CD-RW then you have to use a special feature, like on Easy CD Creator, you would use DirectCD.
DoubleHelix said:To use a CD-RW disk as a floppy, you have to format it using packet writing software. Otherwise, you can burn files to it and leave the session open, and then you can add more files later.

DirectCD comes as part of Roxio
what software do you have
If you keep the CD in the same drive - dont finish the CD leave it open and then you shoudl be able to ADD - but it will only work on that CD until you finish the CD - then complete it so that it can be read anywhere at which point its read only
