Write Protection


I have a CD-ROM with all of my documents on it, but I want to update it because I have more documents that I made since I made the CD. The problem is that the CD is write protected(and it is my last CD, so I can't make another one), it won't let me add files, replace files, delete files. How can I fix that(If it is even possible)??

I have Fedora Core 1

Since you've "write protected" it (I assume you mean it's fixated) then you won't be able to put anything else on the CD. It is now like a music, game, software CD you buy in the store: fixated and no longer burnable. Burnable CDs, though, are pretty inexpensive today and are getting cheaper. Look around for a good deal on 50 or 100 CDs (store here had 100 for $10 last week).

Ok, but how do I not write protect it? Every time I make a CD, it gets write protected.

Check around in whatever burning program you're using for an option to turn off fixating a CD. Then you'll be able to create multi-session CDs. Better yet, invest in some CD-RWs. They're a little more expensive than CD-Rs, but you'll save money by creating less coasters and old CDs. That is, if you have a CD-RW drive of course.
