How do you format a CD-R?

There is a CD-R that I want to format but i don't know how to. Is there a method or a piece of software that I can use to format the disk? I'm currently using Windows XP SP3. Please leave an e-mail so I can tell you if it works.

    You don’t format a CD-R.

    Run your application and record onto it.

    You can only record onto a CD-R one time.

    You cannot format a CD-R.

    A CD-R is a writable CD only, it is empty and formatted from the factory, ready to except data.

    You need a CD-RW disk, which is, writable, erasable and rewritable many times.
