Deleting individual files in a CD-RW

  1. Dec 1, 2006 #1
    My CD does not allow me to delete individual files that I have written on it. It says it is read-only. How do I change this?

    if it says read only, you can't. the CD session's already been closed.

    It is RW. hence re-writable but it seem I can only delete everything or nothing. How can I delete individual files?

    It must be written in 'multisession' mode for you to delete files. It's RW so you can erase it and rewrite it as a multisession disc.

    How do I access this mode?
