    R is Recordable. RW is ReWritable.

    Data, once written to R, cannot be deleted again, which is why you keep losing space each time you write some files to it.

    You need RW in order to delete data off of it.

    Once you've written data to it the ToC/boot place has been written and IIRC marked non-bootable, so even if the game still fit it'd likely not work.

    Grab another disc. Or use ISO mounting software like Daemon Tool to mount ISO.

    You can't erase data on -R disc, so man up and grab another disc.
