you need to be a bit more forthcoming with what your objective is---if you mean REwrite, ie, write, then erase then write again, no.

No when you write to a CD-R using windows not a program like nero it locks the CD-R so you can not write on it again.
How do you stop the CD-R being locked as in nero you just click Multisession.

you don't...you need to understand the mechanism behind the cd-burn. Nero and other programs that use packet-writing software allows multi-session burning.

Windows does not use this method, so you cannot enable multi-session burning. (of course you could simply just store your files in a folder until you are ready to burn)
