How can i delete files from a dvd+rw

When I tried to delete the files on a dvd+rw a sign came up saying that it could not be deleted because it was a read only file.

Does anyone know a way that I could delete the files on the dvd+rw?

Welcome to the forum

Are you using a packet writing software like InCD?

Further to geno888’s question,

Unless the disc was written using packet writing software which simulates a hdd where files can be deleted and added one at a time, you can only erase the whole disc using a program like dvdinfopro or your favorite burning program like Nero. You will be presented with 2 options, quick erase or full erase. Quick erase takes a minute or less and is usually fine unless you absolutely want to fully remove the files from the disc. Full erase can take considerably longer as high as 1/2 hour to an hour depending on the disc rating and your burner.

but how to delete the files i write 1 file in my DvD Disc bi i cant delete it ! :frowning:
