Default Help! How Do I Unprotect a Blank CD-RW.

Every time I go to write/rewrite on a Blank CD-RW I get the message Write Protected.

The thing is I did not write protect it. Does anyone know why this has happened and how do I unprotect it.

Thanks
Turlac

You need to format the disc, you should be able to do this from your burning software.

What burning software do you use?

Thanks for that Mouse. As you can tell I'm not that clued up on these sort of things. I just thought you put the disc in and it was done!

I'm Using Pinnacle Instant Back-Up, it came pre-loaded. Is it any good, will it format the disk for me?

Thanks for your help.

I'm not too sure, as I've never used the program, however if this software allows you to create CD's then use that and format the CD from within the software.

I don't use CD-RW's as they have no use to me.
