I saved some files to a RW DVD. How do I delete them to make room to save some more? Is there such a thing a reformating a disc like one can with a floppy?

Not Nero I have Pinnacle

I used windows explorer and just deleted them ....

Couldn't see how to do it using the software I had ( Intervideo disk Master)

Windows esplorer did it and rather than reformat meant I could keep the files I wanted

don't know about pinnacle but nero gives you the option to erase disc.

Ah. Found if I right click on drive in Explorer then I can do it as it brings up PInnacle reformatting.

which can use RVD-RAM disks. A DVD-RAM disc can be treated as exactly as a big floppy!!!

If you want to do what you want to do with your current writer, you need to install a packet writing software such as "InCD" with Nero, "DirectCd" with Roxio, "DLA" with sonic, "FileCD" with NTI etc etc.
