How do I remove the write protection on a burnable music CD? I am trying to reformat a burnable CD and i keep getting a message saying the disc is write protected and wont let me continue.


You do not say which operating system you are using.

I always advise askers (and answerers too) to use ordinary language to describe and identify things, devices, situations and problems and to avoid technical jargon as much as possible. Where jargon is unavoidable, I advise that care is taken to use technical terms as accurately as possible and that alternative terms, definitions and clarifications are always added in order to aid understanding and minimize confusion.

Your expression "reformat" is unclear.

To wipe the entire storage area or Partition (structured division of a storage area) of storage devices or media that previously contained data is to 'format'.

To "reformat" means, in ordinary language, to return something to its original condition. The term "reformat" is not conventionally used in computer terminology, probably because no storage area, once written in, can ever truly be restored to a virgin state. Formatting does not really wipe data; it just merely instructs and enables the operating system to ignore, or 'be blind' to it. All data written to a storage area can technically be recovered and read, if the right tools, software and techniques are applied. This is why law enforcement agencies and commercial forensic Data Recovery laboratories are able to recover and access lost or deleted data.

So please avoid the word "reformat", which can be confusing because it is sometimes loosely (but wrongly) used as an alternative term for 'Restoration' (restoring a computer to its Factory Settings).

Your expression "burnable music CD" is also unclear.

The term "burnable" (or the more commonly used term, 'writable') is usually used to describe a disc on which it is possible to burn data (information, documents, music, pictures, spreadsheets, designs, drawings, web designs, templates etc.), but onto which no data has yet been burned.

If data already exists on a writable disc, then the disc is usually described as a 'burned'.

Therefore, by definition, a writable "music CD" is a 'burned' rather than a "burnable" CD.

There are 2 types of writable CDs.

CD-R, which can be burned only once and on which any data burned is permanent and cannot be erased, overwritten or added to.

CD-RW can be burned multiple times, can have data burned on it, additional data added to it, can have the data on it overwritten by new data and can have some or all data deleted from it.

Write protection is a security tool to prevent data being deleted unwittingly and can be applied to any device (Internal and External Hard Drives, USB Flash Drives [often called Memory Sticks or Pen Drives], Flash Memory Cards) or writable Media (writable CDs, VCDs [Video CDs], or DVDs).

The Write Protection function for writable CDs or DVDs is usually controlled in the Tools Tab of specialist software used to burn the data onto the discs (such as Nero).

If you are trying to format a burned CD-R or a Write Protection enabled CD-RW (both impossible), this would explain your "This Disc is Write Protected" error message.

If you want to delete data from a CD-RW, you do not need to format it. You can just overwrite it or delete the data from it using the Tools option in your burning software.

The much criticized, built-in CD Burning Tool in Windows is very limited in terms function and controllability. If you a fair to large amount of burning, a full, function dedicated Burning Program such as the various versions of Nero or Ashampoo Burning, would give you much more flexibility and control over your burning operations.

If you currently burn using the simple, built-in CD Burning Tool in Windows, your flexibility and control is severely limited.

I hope this helps.

How do i enable cookies on my computer? and i have java instaled but some games and videos wont play on the computer?

I assume you want to enable Cookies in Internet Explorer (Different for Firefox, googlechrome, etc..).
Open the Internet Explorer, click "Tools", then "Internet Options" and on the Internet Options dialog box, click "Privacy" tab and then click "Advanced" (circled):

Now in the Advanced box, select the "Overwrite automatic cookie handling"

Again, select "Always allow session cookies" [note: by default, both the options should be set as "Accept"]

And then "Ok"
Again "Ok". 2ad5978.jpg

Now your internet explorer's cookies has been enabled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.
