In the past I am sure that you could use a cd-rw in the same way as you would a hard drive. You could drag a file to the disk and it would be automatically written there. Equally, you could simply delete a file if it was not required. Can you still do this? If so, how? Do I need to format the cd-rw in a particular way?
To do the above you use Packet writing software as InCD or Direct CD. You have to first Format a Disc, you can then use as you say in Windows Explorer also add drive to the send to Folder. As above You can only remove from a CDRW you can delete from a CDR but it does not remove the Files only the Index to the file. These discs can only be read by the same software on a computer
