    Question How to erase DVD RW in Ubuntu?

    I may be stupid, but is there any way to erase the contents of a DVD RW disc? I do not see a way in the CD Creator app. I have also read the docs on Ubuntu.com and I cannot find any mention of it.

    I have tried selecting all the content in Nautilus and both dragging it to the Trash Can and pressing the Delete key, but nothing happens.

    Do I just have to take the disc to Win XP and use Nero?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Thank you, Grenage. The format command worked.

    Thanks, ssulaco.

    I had forgotten Brasero ! BTW it now uses the word "Blank".
