using a dvd\rw disc?

  dfghjkl 15:20 01 May 2005

hello all.just a simple one.when using a rw disc for the second time do you delete the files on the disc or do you just treat it as if was a new disc?if it is like a new disc will it delete all files on the disc even if the new data uses less disc space than the old ones?i guess i sound a bit dumb,but if you dont know you have to ask.thanks,peter

A RW disk is usually used like a hard drive (using package writing software like InCD). Just add and delete files as you wish , reformat if you nolonger require all the files.

if you are using the disks to copy films, most writing packages tell you that there is data on the disk and ask you if you wish to delete first. if its data, i agree with fruit bat, incd works really well
