The r writable layer is permanently distorted during the write stage and it can never be re-written, but what about the unused area?

I see the data from the outermost edge of the disc toward the center but I don't see any alteration in the remaining space. It looks as if that area might be able to be written to if the 'completed' notice could be ignored or bypassed.

    Unused space in a finalized CD-R cannot be used. Not finalized it can, depending on the software supporting multi-session. – GabrielaGarcia Aug 30 '18 at 19:36
