    I'm trying to clear a rewritable DVD-RW, but when I try and delete what's already on there a pop up says I have insufficient privileges.

    Could somebody please let me know how I can wipe this DVD so that I can record on it again?

    Thanks for your help.

    If you open the Disk Utility from the Utilities folder (it's on the Go menu), you should be able to Erase the DVD-RW disk from there.
