Write cd help

Is there a software which could tell me upfront a cd is still open to write on? I hate to go through all motions, compile the info, only to have Nero tell me the cd can not be written on.

You should be able to look at the back of the cd and see if there are burn rings. Don’t you keep your unburned cd’s seperate from the burned ones?

Nero’s CD-DVD Speed , disc info should help you. You should get empty, open or closed, maybe some other as well perhaps.
