CD/RW question

Here's what I use: XP Pro, XP's own burning "software", and a 24/10/40 Plextor.

Here's what I want to do: Toss in a CD/RW disk with old data on it, and wipe it out or overwrite the data. This is for backup purposes...

What's the point of using ($$$) CD/RW disks if I can't overwrite old backed up data with new data???

Does a man like myself need better software with more abilities than the built in XP burning software?

Spankyou for looking and reading.

I had one disc go 1100! I used DirectCD 5 (XP Updated). Basically, any UDF reader/writer software will allow you to pretty much drag and drop files to and from a CD-RW

Yeah, Nero is real good. Just make sure that your burner is supported by Nero (nearly all are. Unfortunately, mine isn't).

Haha... I'm not that old. Actually, I was using the disc for an update software which required it to be built unique for each machine. I had to update 400 computers. Took about a month to actually update all 400. Then, right after I got all the machines updated, a new update came out to fix a security hole. Had to redo all the computers (total of 800). After that, I simply used the disc for MP3's and other junk. It died out after being rewritten 1100. It was a Maxwell CD-RW just in case you wanted to know.
