how do u format a burned cd?

If the CD is CD-R then you cannot i'm afraid.

If the CD is CD-RW then you will have to use your burning sofware, which do you use?

you cant format a cdr

if it is cdrw a burning suite such as nero or easy cd usually have utilities which allow you to format them

If it is a CD/RW CD and you have InCD installed you will have an icon on your taskbar (near the clock). Right click on the icon and then left click on Format and follow the prompts. You will lose all data on the CD.

You most certainly CAN format a CD-R.....:-)

You can also use one in multisession form until it is full if you wish.
