Can't erase files on a CD-RW with Windows 8. Thanks for any replies. Tags: CD-Rom Storage Windows 8 Format Last response: May 10, 2014 11:14 AM in Storage Share Kerry94 May 9, 2014 5:34:29 PM I can't erase files on a CD-RW, when I enter the properties and recording tab there is nothing to allow me to allow recording. I obviously cannot just format the CD as it is protected. Thanks..
