Hi, could you tell me how to delete all files or re-format my CD-ROM such that I can use this empty CD to copy another big file. Thanks!

hi, unless you are using rewriteable CDs you can't format them. CDs once burned, will be there for good.
Even rewriteable CDs need WR CD-roms to write them.

My guess is that  you have a Re-writeable cd-rom.  To be able to re-format the cds you need re-writeable cds as well as cd-rom drive.  Most of the burning softwares have the format option.
