Is it a one off disk? If so, it may be damaged I think. What happens with other CD-Rs?

Are you saying that the disc has already been written to and it has been closed or is it a blank disc that you are trying to write to. Files written to a cdr disc become read only and cannot be altered on the disc but can be copied to hard drive then by changing the files attributes you can then alter the file and write it to a new disc.

OK - the disk has been written to; you will need to try another one to be sure that your drive is working ok.

You can only write to a writable or rewritable disc disc that either hasn't been written to or hasn't been finalised or closed. Disc that come with programms on them are not writable but read only. You need to buy either cd-r or cr-rw discs to use in the cd writer. If the disc you have is a cd-r then it looks like someone has already written to it and it has been finalised. Perhaps the cd writer you have has been previously bought then returned to where ever you bought it from?????
