how do I burn files to cd-rw that will not be read only. And can this be changed file on the cd be changed from read ony to write and save updated information?
 
To add new files to a CD-rw or DVD-RW disk you have to reformat the disk and reburn the entire thing with the new files --- Which means erasing all of the contents that are on the disk so is not really the format you want -- what you are wanting is DVD-RAM which is a format similar to a HDD or USB drive where you can reuse the disk much like a HDD and write files to them and erase\add more files without rewritting the entire DVD.
