I have been fighting this one for a while off and on without any success. For a reason unknown to me I can no longer write to CD/DVD-RW media as if it was a disk drive. In the past I have used CD's for Quicken backups, image and video backup, and other miscellaneous save or copy operations. Some time ago, I don't remember when exactly, I started getting errors that the disk is full. When I tried to remove existing files I was told the disk is read only and I can't delete anything on it. I inserted a new disk and it thinks that is full also. The option to erase or format the disk is not available to me.

This past week I updated to service pack 3 of XP Pro in case I had corrupted some part of the OS. That didn't help. I found an entry on the MS site that said this is a known problem with XP and to use third party software. I am using Roxio CD/DVD Creator which has Drag-To-Disk. I have been using Drag-To-Disk for years I believe and purchased the current version of the software when the issues started to eliminate outdated software as the issue. It isn't working either.

Has anyone seen anything like this before?
