Erasing CDs that have read only files or .iso image on them?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Is there any way to erase CDs that have an .iso Image on them. When I try I get a message along the lines of can't erase read only files.

Anyway to force this? I have a stack of new CDs that were used one time. I would like to try a different Linux disto and need to reuse the CDs.

Thanks, DC

Only RW CD's or DVD's can be Erased and rewritten, if thats what you are using, you can erase those Discs, in the software have a look at the disc menu item.

Hope this helps
