How to Erase a Burned CD


CD-RW stands for CD re-writeable. This type of disc can be written on or "burned" multiple times. However, in order to burn music or data onto a CD-RW that already has something on it, you must first erase the current contents of the disc. No special software is needed to do this, as you can do it with the Windows Media Player program, which already comes installed on all computers with the Windows operating system. Regular CD-R discs cannot be erased or reused--the discs must be labeled as CD-RW.

Instructions
Step 1.
Click on the "Start" menu button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Select "Windows Media Player" from the pop-up menu.
Step 2.
Select the "Library" tab in the main Windows Media Player screen.
Step 3.
Insert the CD-RW that you want to erase in the CD-ROM drive. Close the "AutoPlay" window if it appears.
Step 4.
Right-click the CD-ROM drive in the "Navigation" pane on the left side of Windows Media Player. Select "Erase disc" from the drop-down menu. This will automatically erase the contents of the disc.

What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.


DVD-RW
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.

DVD+RW

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.


There you are.

MY PC has sony DVD-ROM DDU1615 that I can't record my videos onto a dvd


you cant burn a disk with a dvd rom
you will need both a dvd rw unit and a dvd rw disk to burn any video to a disk if you have both of these the burning program might not support video burning or you might not have selected the right option there are lots of free burning software programs that can burn videos to a disk you might have to burn it as an ISO image
http://www.majorgeeks.com/BurnAware_Free_d5839.html

How do you erase songs on a CD? I put songs on a CD and would like them to be clear of the CD.


If you wrote to a 'CD-R' disk, then you cannot "erase", because it is "write-once-read-many".

In the unlikely case that you wrote to a CD/RW ("rewritable") disk, you can _erase_ the entire disk.

So, in both cases, you need to "rip" the "good' tracks from the CD, writing to your 'C:' drive, and then write a new CD-R disk.

Take a pair of scissors to the "old' CD-R disk, so that nobody can play the music on that disk.

Is there another way to access erecovery than using ALT + F10 on an Acer Aspire 3680?


only other way is to use your recovery disks
So for this you need to change the boot process to cd/dvd rom.

the recovery disk set normally has 3 cds and 1 system cd

system cd first to activate the recovery mode
then other cds 1-3 will do a complete reinstall like a new machine

lastly you will need to put the system cd in to close the reinstall

CAUTION
this will erase all data from your c drive
and replace it with a factory default set up

I have done it plenty of times,works well.MISTERDJ

How to format my cd


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.

Which dvd disks do I buy to burn a dvd on my optiarc dvd rw ad 7563a ATA Can I add later batches of pictures? can I reuse the DVD disks?


DVD media has several types:

* DVD-R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD+R ("write-once-read-many")
* DVD-RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD+RW ("write/erase/rewritable")
* DVD dual-layer ("write-once-read-many")

Some CD/DVD-writing software allows multiple "sessions" (write a bunch of files, do not "close" the disk, much later write a bunch of files), so that you can "add" files to an "open" ("non-closed") CD/DVD disk.
