That might have been an InCD feature and not Nero.
I have three computers running XP-HE-OEM-SP1 that are my creation. on two i have the option to erase this cd-rw but on the other one the option is no where to be found. it's a pretty simple procedure so that is not the problem. i have searched Google and MS with no luck. I use Nero as my CD burning software on all three so i doubt that is the issue.I have tried restoring back with no luck and also did an sfc /scannow. A repair install just does not seem to be worth the time for such a small problem, I suppose it could be a switch in the registry that has changed but I have no idea where to look. I would appreciate any help, Thanks.
