    Hi, everyone, it's about time I asked a question, :).

    I have downloaded several programs and used windows own eraser, all say the cd is erased but the files are still there.

    I had burned an ISO for Stako OS when I was trying out other operating systems on a low ram pc, and today decided to use it to burn a different os. but I cannot erase it !!!!!

    active dvd erase, cdburnerxp, iso workshop, burnaway(do not try this, had to clean my system after this program) iso recorder and I think another but cannot remember, I got tired and uninstalled all of them.

    any help appreciated, :)
