    Default CD-RW Can't Be Erased in Windows 8

    Hey guys,

    I have a piece of SONY CD-RW. And the content in it was burned by a LG CD-ROM burner. While after I updated the operating system of my computer to Windows 8 home premium, I am using the SNMSUNG DVD-ROM burner. Recently, I want to erase the content in it to reburn. While the computer indicates me that it can not be erased when I use NERO. So I want to know whether I have to use the former CDROM burner to erase it.

    Is there anyone can do me a favor?

    Thanks very much!

    In "Computer", try single right-clicking the CDRW drive. A bunch of options should come up...

    I have right clicked and erased the files on my RW CD and then used Windows Media Player to put new songs on it. However, whereas the CD will play on my Windows 8 and Windows 7 PC's it won't play in either of my vehicle's CD player. Is there some trick to getting the files in a format that works in car stereos?

    Why a mention of Nero? No burning software needs to be added to Windows 8 or Windows 7 for that matter.

    Sorry things I read often make curiosities come to my mind
