Toast Not Erasing CD-RW - Mac Applications & Software

I have a CD-RW that failed the burn process, and now it won't erase. I have seen this problem on different CD-RWs since Toast 4.

    Default Toast Not Erasing CD-RW

    I have a CD-RW that failed the burn process, and now it won't erase. I
    have seen this problem on different CD-RWs since Toast 4. The only way
    that I ever got the disc to erase properly was to use a PC to erase it.
    I don't have access to a PC anymore, so I'm stuck.

    Does anyone know of a reason why a CD-RW won't erase properly in Toast?
    I'm using Toast 6, for the record. I choose Erase from the Disc Info
    dialog box or Erase from the Recorder menu, and though I receive a
    dialog that states that the disc has been erased successfully, when I
    reinsert the disc, the same data appears and prevents me from burning
    new data.

    This is a fairly new CD-RW, less than six months old and infrequently
    used.

    Hope someone can help,

    You can also try erasing a CD-RW from Apple's Disk Utility. That might
    work better if Toast is having a problem with your drive.

    But in my experience the usual cause is a bad CD. I've had very poor
    luck with Memorex brand, for example, but Verbatim and HP have been very
    reliable. Whenever I have had a CD that would not erase in my Mac, it
    would not erase in a PC either.

    Thanks, Al. I forgot about Disk Utility, so I tried that, and it worked
    OK.

    Cheers,
