    Windows XP Erase Disc

    Anyone ever come across an issue where the Erase Disc option doesn't actually erase the contents of the disc? I.e It removes the files, but when you put the disc back in they're there again?

    It could be the RW disc is on its way out. There's only so many times you can re-write. Have you tried another application to wipe it?

    Plenty mentioned on this site

    Free CD and DVD Burning (Writing) and Copying Software (thefreecountry.com)

    Or if you have it then Nero ( nero is one of the best commercially available burners available ) as far as I know - correct me if I am wrong
