    When you buy the disc obviously they have no data on them which means the first time you put them in your cd-writer it should burn no problems. However in order to use that disc again you will have to erase it before you can put any more data onto it. Most burning software will have this option. I normally use clone cd to erase my discs.

    Hope this helps.

    Either quick or full rease will work. Full erase takes a lot longer though.
