I have a cd drive and a cd-rw drive. how do i copy from 1 drive to another? i tried copy and paste but the windows media player on home xp did not recognize the file. do i need other software, if so any free versions. this will probably have been answered before but i couold not find it in the search (obviously not entering right info..garbage in garbage out) as we say in the trade !
The CD burner installed with XP is basic, to say the least. You need dedicated software to be able to do any CD or DVD burning over and above the most simple. Nero or Roxio ECCD are the ones most people use.
I should draw your attention to part of the Site Policy though:
"'Cracks' or copyright infringement - we do not permit the posting of information that will enable other people to use pirated software or to evade the copyright laws.
Bear in mind as well that many (most?) commercial CDs have copy protection which renders copied disks useless.
Please don't encourage this debate yet again. I stated the site policy on this no more, no less.
As far as I'm concerned, you can do whatever you want with your own computer and I have no interest whether you break the law of not, just as long as it doesn't involve me. It's up to you and your own moral values.
Has there not been reference to this in the PCA mag. I am sure it was stated that making a backup of your disk was perfectly reasonable. Can this not only constitute burning your own complication and what about all the features about MP3.
As hellred fairly says "God in heaven", chill out man.
You can send the copyright squad around to my house as I make at least 3 copies of all my music C|D's. I store the original for safe keeping. Keep one in the car, one for the gym and one for the stereo. Oh and I have them copied to my hard drive.
If I am paying £10-£20 for a music C\D ain't I allowed to listen to it.
Or would the music industry prefer I buy 3 dodgy copies of the market.
Just been on your click here & i assume that this can be used with WINXP Home edition
must admit that i also make copies of cd's, one for the car & one for the lads, keeping the original safe just in case the lads scratch their copy or the cd player in the car gets nicked. If the prices of cd's were cheaper then we would not have to make copies, we could buy the original time after time
