Yes, thats what I've been trying to say, that is the only way you can burn from Windows itself without 3rd party tools. InCD (a 3rd party tool) makes it appear like windows is writing files to the cd like it would a floppy disk or another hard drive or a usb stick. Which is still entirely different than opening up Nero Burning ROM or any other app that has a gui to burn files.Isn't any burner attached to this XP SP2 computer recognized as a burner, and if you move files to it, Windows will give you a "burn" option?
Not true, at least not for me, and at least not with a retail copy of Nero 6....(!) (?)"InCD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InCD writes it just like the CD was a floppy disk, or makes it appear like that to the user"...
Yes, I think I used InCD when XP was first released, but as I said, recent installs of SP2 and Nero will not allow me to install InCD. It seems to conflict with something in XP, SP2
Tangent or not, if a drive will burn at it's rated speed with packet writing software installed, how could it be "so slow"?I can't believe anyone uses packet writing software by any manufacturer, its so slow, big compatibility issue, and its just bad .
/I fear we've taken this thread off on a tangent.
