That't why you have the problem; you need somehting like InCD as mentioned above - what's called packet writing software.

The built-in Windows "Drag&Drop" recording appears to write "read-only" files, which cannot be deleted in the normal way.

What you can do is copy off all the files into a temporary folder, erase the CD (right click on the drive icon) - then write back only those you want.

I just did this as a test and it works fine.

I presume this is to ensure that such CDs are readable without special software, in other systems.

It can be more practical to use special software, such as noted above, like Nero InCD
