I had a CDRW that I replaced with a CDRW/DVD+RW. The software that came with the DVD does not do CDRW's, only CDs. Can I use the software from the first drive to do CDRWs on the new one? One other question - the CDRW software with the first machine was B's clip gold. I found that other PCs couldn't read CD's or CDRWs written with it, and that it wouldn't read CD's/CDRWs written on other PCs. Is there a different software out there that I could download to do CDRWs on this new drive? I'm building a new machine with XP Home, and will be moving the DVD to it. I will reinstall the CDRW into my existing machine and keep it operational. I'd really like to find a software that I could use on both to write CDRWs that other PCs could read etc. Thanks! The new one is a Sony, and came with NTI software, both to make CDs (not CDRWs) and DVDs and CD+RWs.
