    write protect CD-RW

    I used Ahead software's lnCD, which comes with the Nero Burning Rom CD, in an effort to copy and paste
    data to a CD-RW. I always get warning (paraphrased) "can't copy as CD is write protected".

    How do I remove write protection from an EMTEC (BASF) CD-RW?
    My CD-RW drive is a TEAC CD-W54E.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: write protect CD-RW

    Have you already formated the CD-RW with INCD? If so, what is it you are tryng to copy and paste. I don't see how the Blank CD could be Write Protected. Normally the program you are trying to burn is the one Write Protected. Can you give me the exact error you are getting and when.

    Open CD: If a CD is open, it means that further information can be added to it. It is not write protected.

    Closed CD: If a CD is closed, it is permanently write-protected. No further information can be added to the disc. Closing a CD is analogous to moving the write-protect tab on a floppy disc to the write-protect position. However, unlike with floppies, you can only change the write-protect setting on a burned CD once. Once the disc is write-protected (closed), this setting is permanent.

    Closed session: A closed session is permanently write-protected. No further information may be added to that particular session. However, the remaining space on the CD is still open and may be recorded
