Are you using a rewritable CD?
They are labeled CD-RW.
If it's not a CD-RW you can't update files already burned to the CD.

If it's a "write once" CD I believe you can add more files if you did not do a "finalized" burn.
They are labeled CD-R.

Copy the Word document from the CD to your Desktop.
Right-click the copy of the Word document and click Properties. Make sure that the box saying "Read only" is unchecked.
Open the copy of the Word document in Word and make your changes.
Save the changed Word document.
Reburn the changed Word document to either a new blank CD-R or to a rewritable CD-RW.
