It's the 830 and I actually do have the manual..someplace (like everything). 
I'll try what you've suggested. For now, on this disc, using from the last 
point is fine for short items where I don't feel like wasting a whole new CD.

Most HHBs have the option to erase more than one track at a time so, for example, if you have 10 tracks recorded you can choose to erase only track 10, tracks 9&  10, tracks 8, 9&  10, tracks 7, 8, 9&  10 etc. or all 10.

If the option "Erase TOC" appears then the disc is finalised and erasing the TOC returns it to an unfinalised state at which point you can start erasing tracks as above or, if there's room, add more tracks.

Put the disc in the drawer, click start, then click computer where you will see the disc.  Highlight it and the erase option will come up.  I'm using a Windows 7 PC, by the way.
