I recently bought a cd/rw burner. I thought that I could copy files and then would have the ability to edit those files on the newly burned disk. I have found out that I cannot do that. Am I doing something wrong?

after burning obviously you cant change the file on the disk,but you can copy/paste it back into windows and work on it no problem........but then you will have to burn the ALTERED file to disk again.
hope this helps;)

and welcome to T.S.G by the way:)

If you use a UDF packet format driver like Direct-CD with CD-RW media, you can treat the CD like a slow hard disk. Perhaps that's what you were thinking about?
