What operating system?

Usually go to My Computer > Right mouse click on the drive and choose format.

Don't choose the wrong drive!

What OS are you using ?

most CD/DVD writing programs have the option to erase a RW disc.

What you can also do is right click the DVD / Erase, or As explained here (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Erase-a-CD-or-DVD)
