    To do what you want, you need to format the disc (just lke you do a hard drive).

    I use DirectCD for this (came with the computer, seems to work just fine for this purpose). There's probably other SW that'll do that as well. Do a search here and see if anyone's recommended something in the past.

    With Nero go to 'Recorder' in the top task bar and then 'erase re-writable' option to erase the disc, then you can use again.
