Unfortunatly, you can't use a CD-RW like a floppy.
A floppy you could copy files to and change them on the fly.
A CD-RW means that you can reburn the CD, but they have a limited life (I think its maybe 100 burns, or some number that isn't all that high)
Because of the nature of CD-RWs you won't be able to use it like a floppy.
A CD-RW works like a CD-R in that you burn whatever you want onto the CD, and you can read it but if you want to save it, it burns the entire CD again, replacing the old stuff. This takes more time and with the rewriting you wear out the disc.

Sorry Nancy, but its not possible... you may want to invest into the new Zip drive if thats what you are looking for.
