How do I RW on a previusly used CR/RW?


This question was answered on April 3, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

First you need a third party software like nero burning rom The built-in Windows 2000 drivers for CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD-R devices treat them as read-only devices Note that no version of Microsoft Windows to date (Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 95, or Microsoft Windows 3.x) natively supports the ability to write to CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD-R devices Writing to (or "burning") these devices requires third-party drivers and software in Windows 2000

then follow the directions contained for rewriting the cd-rw for that application.
