There are 2 main types of CDs: CD-Rs and CD-RWs.
* If the CD is a CD-RW (or CD+RW) then yes, you can wipe it and start again. To do this use any CD burning program: something like Nero would do fine. * CD-Rs are not erasable. However, if you originally created the disc with something like Nero, you may have been offered the option of "Starting a Multi-session disc" or something like that. If you chose that option, then you would be able to burn more files onto the CD until it is full, however you still would not be able to change or delete existing files.
It can be erased and used again, instead of buying new CD-R's just erase a CD-RW and put the new data on it.
cd-rw is more expensive because it can be easily erased and re-written over and over again.
A CD-R cannot be erased, once media is put on it, it cannot be taken off, but a CD-RW can be erased and resotred as many times as you want.
A CD has a certain amount of memory and is blank until something is loaded or burned on it. When a program or file is burned on the CD, the CD no longer acts as a memory space but as a readable file. Every time that disc gets put in another computer, it will be read for the file that was burned on it.
yes it can be written but unfortunatly it cannot be erased
u cannot transfer music or any kind of data from your PC to CD/DVD. But actually u Can burn them using Nero. Burning is a process where the data is written on the CD. once burned, it cannot be erased unless it is a CD-RW or DVD-RW!
A CD Drive reads CDs.A CD-R drive writes to CD-R discs. Rewrite not possible.A CD-RW drive writes to CD-RW discs. Rewrite capable.CD drive can only read a CD and not write to it, the drive is called a CD-ROM drive. CD-R is a recordable drive, it will burn to CD-R discs, which can only be burned to one time.CD-RW drives support CD-R and CD-RW, which is the ability to burn to CD-RW discs, which can be burned to, and erased, hundreds of times.
A CD-R disc can not be erased.
CD-r's are permanent CDs and cannot be erased.
CD-R can't be formatted. (erased)
It can be written and erased thoroughly.
A CD-R (Compact Disc - Read) is designed to be written to one time and the data be stored permanently (in some cases, the data can be erased, but the CD becomes worthless). A CD-RW (Compact Disc - Read/Write) can be erased and written to multiple times (much like the old cassette or VHS tapes. They can be erased and rewritten multiple times).
i burned the CD
The most obvious reason is because you burned the CD incorrectly.
You can't. Once you burn a CD-R it cannot be erased. If you want a reburnable CD look for CD-RW.
CD-Rs are permanent. Once written to, they cannot be erased or formatted.
To reformat a CD-RW use a disk utility application, or an application like Toast. Reformatting will erase all media on the CD-RW. The CD-RW can then be re-written, or burned again with new information.
You may have burned it in the wrong format which your cd-player may not be able to play. You could have also burned it on a type of disk that your cd-player is unable to read for example lets say your cd-player only plays CD-R and you are using a CD+R
Yes, as CD-R's can just be burned once, while CD-RW's can be burned multiple times. They are he same thing.
If the CD is a CDR is can only be Used Once.If the CD is a CDRW it can be erased and used multiple times.
Yes. Once the disc is burned, it behaves just like any other CD.
no. everything from your iPod will be erased, but your itunes will stay the same, so when you sync it again, everything will be on your iPod again
A burned CD into a blank disc by erasing it using a CD-RW drive and the appropriate software. This only applies to rewritable CDs.
Not if the data is burned on. If it is just stored then yes, but if it's music burned on, NO
