    How do i burn files to a DVD RW, but without locking the DVD. I knew how to do this on the PC. With DVD RWs you can Rewrite data on the disc over and over much like a floppy disk. You can also "lock" them (permanently) so that they are no longer rewritable. I wanted to just burn some stuff on them WITHOUT making it permanent. Do I just click Burn as usual or what?

    I don't think you can lock DVD-RWs; the point of them is so you can rewrite it; if you want to lock it, just use DVD±R
