I don't know of any way, to "change" them.
Once a CD is finalized, that's it.

If you want to create CDs, that you can add information to at a later date, you need to create multi-session CDs.
Once a CD is finalized, unless it's a CD-RW, there's no way to write to it again.
In the case of a CD-RW, it can be erased, then re-written to.

You're welcome, Kutter.

I also use the freeware version of DeepBurner.
It's easy to use, and hasn't given me any problems, in the several years I've been using it.
