Cannot Write to a Erased CD-RW?

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?

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.
