How can I add a single file to a CD-RW disk and preserve existing data

Asked by Ken Currie on 2009-08-30

Under Windows a CD-RW disk acts as another drive so that one or more filed can be added to what already is on the disk, simply by using a copy or delete command. In Linux, using Brasero, I have only been able to write once to a disk. Nothing further can them be added to it, and material can only be removed by blanking the disk. Please suggest to me how I can add or remove a single file a CD-RW disk, either using Brasero or some other method. This is important to me because I use such disks as a cumulative archive.

Hi there,

use Brasero CD/DVD Creator . Drag your files to the disc. Click "Write to Disc". Select Properties and click "Leave the disc open to add other files later".

This will let you add files to the disc. I hope this answer solves your problem.

Can you help with this problem?
