Correct.
If you have Microsoft's default burner (not Roxio), then....
even though you are working with a CDRW, and are able to rewrite existing
files, however you can not erase them off the CDRW. The only way to erase
files is to completely re-format the CDRW. :(
Also, you can't work off the CDRW itself, it will be write-protected. You
can work on your hard-drive and then save the file back to the CDRW. :(
That's the breaks of free software. Roxio doesn't have these problems.
Hope this helped out.
