Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I have purchased some DVD+RW discs and I was succesful in burning content to it the first time around, but I cannot burn to that disc again. I have a possible solution, but I want to know my FREE alternatives to rwrite to these discs. My solution is to open up Parallels and have Nero erase the disc. Does are there anybody know of some Free alternative way to reburn the RW discs, without having to erase the disc?

When you rewrite to a Disc, you basically just erase it and write to it again. If you want to APPEND files to the ones already exisiting, you don't even need rewritable discs, you only need a burning app that supports multiple session discs.

You can use DVD burn again for Multi session DVD's. Here is a link:

And if you just want to erase the disk and re-burn (which is the free alternative) then CD erase is a handy program for that (also works with DVD's). Here is the link:

I think Disc Utility (in your utilities folder) will erase the discs, it erases CD R/W discs.

100% correct on that A-M !

Insert CD/DVD, fire up Disc Utility and select the disc in the left pane and click on the Erase button in the right window and follow the instructions to erase a R/W disc.

Yep, just tried it on a Verbatim DVD R/W 4X disc and it worked perfectly, quick too (in comparison to my DVD recorder that is).

Yeah Disc Utility will do it fine. Disco does it in a really fun way. And Toast does it really well, but a bit complicated
