Transfer files to CD

  curly 13:18 09 Sep 2004

I have two computers. On one I may drag and drop files onto a CD.

On the other I have a problem. Whenever I try to drag and drop it refuses to do this. When I look at the CD properties, it shows the disc full, when it is empty!

I should be grateful for suggestions. The programme on the computer is 'Easy CD Creator'.

format the CD using the facility in Easy CD Creator. That has worked for me in the past

Nero is probably a better bet - I much prefer it to Easy CDCreater.

If you use Nero in multisession form with CD-Rs you can create a folder and drag and drop items to it as required until the disk is full. Then finalise the disk prior to the last burning session. No formatting is necessary.

CD-Rs are superior to CD-RW disks as they have far superior reflectivity and dramatically reduce any likelihood of problems reading them on your drive - or any other drive - in the future.

If you intend to create backups, use two disks to ensure a backup for a backup. One may be accidentally damaged or some other mishap occur.

I guess somebody solved his problem.

If you are still out there, I went and looked at Nero, and it said there was new one out soon, how much is Nero, I have Pinnacle which is not very good but I am lothe to spend yet more money on another program that "Does the same job" what is your opinion on what I should do ?.

from the Nero Ahead site anyone can download a months free trial of the latest Nero6 ... and after the months trial is up; do the same again.
And again.
I think it's a reverse way of selling a product.

I also looked on the Nero site and was unsure where to download the months trial of Version 6 as it says "A demo version will shortly become available."

Thanks downloading, I will give it a try. Daibus you can download the last version, it's just that they are bringing out a new one soon.
