I am trying to erase a CD by formatting it. I don't know of any software on my computer to format it. I have windows xp.
I tried right clicking on the C drive with the CD in it to see if "format" was an option. It wasn't. I don't know how to get the CD formatted.

Can anyone help me??? Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

I'm having the same problem. I can write data files to my CD-R, but then I can't delete them or update them. It says they are read only files. So is this just a function of CD-Rs, and not something I'm doing wrong? If I want to overwrite old data files on a CD, with updated files, or delete files all together, which type CD do I need to use?

You can not format a Cd-R you need to get a Rewritable Cd which will allow you to use it over and over again... Now what the crap does it mean by it could be using a format that is not compatble with windows (it's a Dvd-r)seeming as it worked on my cousins Pc? How can I access this Cd, it's got alot of stuff i need in there!
I would be very greatful if someone could help me out...

Can I format a CD to play on my DVD player? The video I want to put on it is just 5 minutes.

in order to format the disk you will need to do the following:
wear latex gloves
put on safety goggles
wear protective clothing
prepare your funeral
take the disk and place in hand
throw the disk and destroy it

You can not format nor delete any data of any kind on a cd-r (recordable cd) because the data is "melted" (burned) onto the cd-r so it cant be un-done. You need a cd-rw (rewrite-able) to "format" or delete the data stored.
