Cannot be done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A re-writable disk is just that - it can be re-written or erased, you cannot change the way it is manufactured.

CE-RW means that the the disk is Read/wwite

CD.ROM refers to the drive itself meaning that is it Read only and cannot be used to burn disks..

So the question as asked you are trying to turn a CD disk into a CD drive!! .

If you are trying to make the disk so the the data cannot be deleted, use a CD-R disk which is write once and read many times. A CD-R disk cannot be erased. A CD-RW disk can. You cannot make a CD-RW disk into CD-R. The method of manufacture is totally different.

Arto, instead of us guessing what it is you need to do, why not tell us.

Yes, a proper explanation would be more useful to us than stacks of question marks. Then we would have a better chance of helping you.

Just guessing, but if you want to prevent accidental CD-RW overwriting then "finalize" it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Finalizing a disk purely stops further files being written to it so that it can be opened on machines other than the one on which it was created, it won't protect it from being erased, and not many systems will let you finalize a CDRW anyway.

I guess there is a use for RW disks. That said, years ago when I bought my very first CDRW burner I received a free CDR and a CDRW disk. I have yet to burn that CDRW disk or buy a write again disk in CD or DVD format.

Just doesn't make economic sense to me. I might add that for a number of years I used Roxio Drag to Disk for instant backup of personal files. Roxio used CDR media and instead of erasing files it just marked them as deleted. The cost difference between the media is significant and the shelf life of write again disks is much shorter.

I buy DVDR for $15/20 per hundred when on sale. I have gotten them for $10/ hundred.

Yes, you can always format a finalized CD-RW but it does stop the odd accident, although I agree that is not the real reason for finalizing.

Whatever, we really have no clue what this post is about unless the poster returns.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
