Question about Computers & Internet
You don't format CD'S, and if and only if you have a cd-rw, you just erase
(delete) the data that is on it off.
If you do format it, it probably won't work anymore.
CD- you can only write to it one time,and that's it.
CD -RW you can erase and re write.
You format a hard drive when you install a operating system, or you format a flash drive from FAT to NTFS
If you burn it with windows, you might see windows say formatting,
but you don't do it.

If the disk is a CD-RW [a rewritable disk] the burning software you use will have a utility that will allow you to format it to prepare for new data to be written to it. Standard blank CD's are burn once.

Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.
Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.
In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.
In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.
Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:
Live File System
Click Next to prepare the disc.
Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.
