CDRW - Unrecognized Format

Hey, I popped in a CDRW into my LITE-ON 48x earlier today and I ran into some problems. It recognized the CD just fine and opened files from the media but I couldn't add anything. It told me that the media was 'read only'.

Can someone give me some suggestions as to how I can get around this? A program to use, something to setup?

are you talking about wanting to packet-write to a cdrw,
like adaptec direct-cd or nero in-cd? that's really tough
to do, for now.
but, just for simple cdwriting, the scsi-emulation for the
drive has to be set up properly, then using a cdrecord
frontend, (look at, you can write.
cdrecord doesn't really require scsi-emulation anymore,
with the newest version, but use it anyway, so all the
instructions all over theweb will work for you.
