If it's all musicm try copying the disk on a pc. It will exhaust a lot of retries in recovering unreadable data.

If it's data files, try copying individual files via a PC.

Recording/burning to disc

I searched your system and it shows a CD/DVD/RW.
So you can burn CD, DVD+R RW and DVD-R RW
So the most common DVD media would be the DVD+ media.
CD media would be all CD media. (info) RW: Re-Writable

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.

My computer recognizes my burner, but only as a CD drive and not re-writable. how do i get it to see it so i can burn data CDs

This is depending on wha tprogram you are using, not really on the computer.

You need to "tell" the program that disk is re-writable, and disk must-be re-writable, or computer will reject it. Re-writable disks are marked as such.

I would suggest searching google for "free cd/dvd burner" and you will have several thousand entries, as you did not provided me what is your operating system, I cannot advice what I would recommend.

On my windows system I am using few different burn programes, maybe one will suits you, this one is which I am using most often:

Of course you can go for example to this site and select whatever burning programe takes your fancy, I would suggest download several and then delete these which you do not like.

Again, you did not provided wha toperating system you are using and what burning program you use, feel free to ask further question on this topic if you require further help, but do provide "missing" data :-)

Sonic cannot find writable equipment on my PC

When you open "My Computer", does the icon shows 'CD-ROM' or 'CD-writer' ?

When you open "Device Manager", and expand the 'DVD/CD' branch of the tree, is your CD-writer listed?

I just let my credit card information in a few minutes ago.i have a blank hard disk and am rying to install Ubuntu.iso on a hard disk using an emergency disk fom Windows to boot up the system with cd...

If you have the 'ubunto.iso' file, you need CD/DVD-writing software to read that ISO file, and to burn that image onto a blank writable disk.

Then, restart your computer, and change the "boot-order" so that the CD/DVD device is the _FIRST_ boot-device. Then, Ubuntu will boot-up, and you can "install" Ubuntu onto your disk-drive.

I cant find a cd that will download all episodes is there any other cds that i can use

Each writable-CD holds about 700 MegaBytes of data. Each writable-DVD holds about 4700 MegaBytes of data; yes, almost 7 times as much.

Your computer may be able to write to DVD-media.

you need to download the software for cd-rw drag and drop recording.

Burning printable cds

I believe it means one of two things:
1: After burning a writable disc, it is not recommended to leave it in writable mode. You should finalize it so it can play on other players.

2: It said that it doesn't recommend burning RE-writable CDs. They tend to be much less reliable than writable ones.
