    Re-record over a CD -R or DVD-R


    Hi, I'm not to au fait with the ins and outs of media player yet. I have a
    new pc and can burn music using media player but can't re-record over it
    again. I drill down to the drive that the CD is on and try and format it to
    clear it. But the tick box is greyed out and so I can't. I've looked on
    Tools, Options, Rip music, Copy Protect Music and there is no tick in the
    box, it's clear.
    I'm sure it must be a snip to fix this but I'm stumped on it myelf.
    Can someone give me a heads up please? Thanks!

    You cannot do it on one of those not too sure of the technology but once you
    burn to a CD-R that's it it is a once only operation. If you want to keep
    using a CD or DVD you have to use a RW type disc and have the necessary
    drive and software to be able to write to that type of disc.
    Hope that helps you.
