Metadata checksum Metadata redundancy optional in UDF 2. It also requires platforms to preserve the information that they don't understand.
Data recording and erasing was achieved by heating the magneto-optical layer's material e. Dy Fe Co or less often Tb Fe Co or Gd Fe Co up to its Curie point thus erasing all previous data and then using a magnetic field to write the new data, in a manner essentially identical to Sony's MiniDisc and other magneto-optical formats.
Reading of the discs relied on the Kerr effect. This was also the first major flaw of this format: The format was never released commercially,  mostly because of its inherent incompatibility with standard CD reading units.
A similar situation was also present for early CD-R media, which suffered from either physical or logical incompatibilities. Since the CD-MO was otherwise physically identical to "normal" CDs, it still adopted their spiral-groove recording scheme, which would have rendered it hard to use as a removable medium for repeated, small scale deletions and recordings not unlike CD-RW.
There were and are however some magneto-optical drives and media with the same form factor that don't have this limitation. This early introduction along with the lack of standards for disc recording software, file systems and formats, physical incompatibility as well as the introduction of the more economical CD-R discs essentially caused the format to be abandoned before commercialization,   and the whole idea of a rewritable CD medium to be almost forgotten until modern phase change CD-RWs appeared.
Mechanism of action[ edit ] Rewritable media can, with suitable hardware, according to some manufacturers, be re-written up to times. To keep rotational speed precise, tracks have a slight superimposed sinusoidal excursion of 0. The reflective layer is, however, a silver - indium - antimony - tellurium AgInSbTe alloy, which has in its original state, a polycrystalline structure and reflective properties.
This causes liquefaction of the material. In this state, the alloy loses its polycrystalline structure, assumes an amorphous state and lose its reflectivity.
The lost reflectivity serves the same function as bumps on a manufactured CDs and the opaque spots on a CD-R which will be read as a "0". The alloy is not melted, but returns to the polycrystalline state and is thus again reflective.Insert the CD-RW disc you want to erase.
The contents of the disc will appear on the screen. Find the CD-RW icon and the name of the CD-RW on the left pane. Left-click on it to ensure this is the disc you want to erase with Windows Media Player.
This will pop up what drive it is in and the name of the CD-RW.
