Erase it and start over again if you don't want the material that is on it now.

Imgburn (free burning program) www.imgburn.com

Within ImgBurn, go to Tools-->Drive-->Erase Disc-->Quick Erase.

Once done, you can write to it with any burning program.

If you are using a standalone most of these will also erase a DVD RW . Some call it Formatting.
This is not as complete as an ImgBurn Full Erase .

If you get errors after burning the disc, then do a FULL erase before to write data on the disc

oops too slow in typing
