I can copy files to a new CD-RW, but if I erase this disc and want to place new files on it, it won't accept them even though the disc is now blank. What's the problem?

Did you reformat the disc?
I was going to ask the same thing as blazincopper ;-)
It could be that the disk is full - it's my understanding that rewritable disks have only so much room and if the space has been taken up, it is gone. Say you put 100 mgs on a 700 mg cd and you erase it, you still have only 600 mgs left. So it would then stand to reason that they could only be used a certain number of times. Plus they have a life expectancy of only about 2-3 years. Regular cds have a much longer life expectancy. You can check it out on Wikipedia.
