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.
