I downloaded a burn program ImgBurn and inserted a recordable CD, which is full of data. I tried to erase the data, using Windows Explorer's instructions, but couldn't follow them.
1. How do I erase the data?
2. How do I transfer the printer driver I want to record onto the CD?

There are a number of variables involved.

One is, the disc in question must be a read/write disc. If it's not, you can't erase stuff from it.
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.

Rather than try to work with a rewritable CD, I discovered that I can copy the driver to a thumb drive and use that. My question then is how do I transfer/copy the
driver to the thumb drive?

Make sure you have all hidden files visible. Go to you windows system folder, locate the driver that you want and copy and paste it to your external media.
