    [SOLVED] Can you microcode a RISC processor and make a CISC processor?

    [SOLVED] Can you write/rewrite a CD-ROM?

    If I have a blank CD-ROM, and I wrote some information on it, can I rewrite information on it even though it is CD-ROM? What if I have a CD-ROM already pre-installed with information, can I write information to that?
