    Yesterday I sent music files to a new DVD+RW disc. Today I went to delete some of these files and could not as the files are READ ONLY. How do I change this so that I may delete at will. I am using Vista Home Premium. Thanks, eddie460

    You'd have to format the disk with some type of packet writing software. However, that can be unreliable and incompatible with other computers and drives. If you want to frequently read and write data to a portable medium, pick up a 4GB flash drive.
