Hi

I created recovery DVDs, RW, for Dell Laptop. I no longer need the information they contain, and want to erase the Disks.

When I click 'Format' I get the message, 'The disk is write protected'.

How to over-come this please ?.

Thank you.

Thank you.

On other occasions I have Right-clicked to Erase. On this occasion it has not worked despite repeating the operation quite a few times.
