I have this audio CD that I found recently, and I want to clear everything off of the CD (there's only like, one song on it). Unfortunately, it's write protected, so I'm not really sure how to get around that? I've been searching the internet for hours and I still can't find anything that had to do with the removal of the write protection that's on the CD.

When I tried to restore it to its defaults, it came up with this popup:


What can I do about this? Can I even do anything at all?

Hi 7687mango, and welcome to TSG.

Your subject line mentions DVD, but your question is about a CD.

Unless the disc in question is a CD-RW type, there is no way to erase a song from an Audio CD. You can erase the entire contents of a burned CD-RW disc and then record on it again.
