Wiping and Re-using CD-RW

    To save making coasters while burning I thought I could burn to CD-RW disks, check them, then use them again. However, wiping a disk using Nero formats it so that it can only be used 'like a floppy', it also reduces a 700meg disc to just over 500meg cos of the file system it puts in place. Is there a simple way to just wipe and reuse CD-RW without it being formatted and losing space ?

    Do not format it, erase it. In fact all you need to do is insert it when buring something and Nero will ask whether you want the disc blanked.
