✔ Best Answer
CD-R Disks can only be written to once. You won't be able to perform that function. Only CD-RW support writing to more than once. RW = ReWrite

Actually that's not true. You can set up a CD-R with multisession writing and write to it many times. You just won't be able to wipe it and re-write to it once the disc is full.

Formatting of a CD-R or CD-RW for multisession use should be done with burning software.
