I've always found packet writing very unreliable, so changed to creating multisession disks instead. G

Packet writing of any flavour (InCD or anything else) is the spawn of the davil - AVOID!!!!

Unless, of course you want to increase the scrap CD mountain.

There's an excellent alternative to the 'scrap CD mountain' (or coaster-making) - give them away to charity through the Forum Editor click here.

I find packet writing in XP to be perfectly satisfactory and very reliable. I use TDK discs. The only disadvantage (which doesn't bother me but might be a problem for others) is that you cannot selectively delete certain files or folders from an XP-written CD-RW. I think other programs probably can do that, but I have never had any reason to use anything but the built-in XP CD writing wizard. You can still write multiple seesions without losing existing data.
