Default Anyway to Format AOL CDs ? [; ; win95b]

sponsored links

Is there anyway to format and reuse the AOL, MSN, etc. CDs that come to me in the mail?

It seems they are "write-protected" ( or something) and when I try to FORMAT them using "INCD / AHEAD NERO" software . . . the CD is not even recognized as being in the drive.

I can READ the CD in Windows Explorer - but cannot change any File ATTRIBUTES.

Do I just throw out these CDs or is there a way to reformat them?

Thank you.

they are not Re-Writables m8 so you wont be able to write to them,

Also i think they use a special CD Writer to write it with although i am not completed sure.
