read only files on cd-rw

  Studdy 15:37 07 Aug 2006

I have several files on a cd-rw that I want to erase but I keep getting the message that these files are read only and can't be erased or moved.
Can anyone help?

Sorry. Should have read the search forum first.
I have got the answer.

Normally you have to reformat a RW disk to erase files. The exception is if you are using a program such as InCD, which pre-formats the CD like a huge floppy disk that you can write to and erase from at will. The big problem is that the base format is flaky.
