Have recently replaced my computer to something that is using Windows XP and am having a frustrating time working out its various "foibles" (having used W98 before).
Can someone please advise me whether you can copy an audio cd directly to a blank disk as opposed to first copying it the hard drive (via media player)then copying it again to the blank disk. I've also tried dragging the files across but this only copies "shortcuts" to the tracks to the original CD.
I used to be able to do this under W98 and I am now worried about the loss in quality due to in effect, making a copy of a copy - let alone the time it takes !
Thank you everyone. I guess the answer is to get Nero or something similar.
Mango Grummit: my thoughts are with you ! I have yet to find any advantage with XP. Another ridiculous thing I've noticed is that all my files under "My Documents" are duplicated - My docucments appear under "desk top" and then again under "C-drive". Not quite sure why or if its taking twice the space. Deleting one entry will also effect the other. Someone mentioned to me that it was due to the fact that by default, XP sets up an account for the user ???? !!
