A Couple of Nero Questions?

by fell-off-the-truck / July 3, 2004 8:54 AM PDT

What is the "In CD" Part of Nero?

I tried to install it and it says I must uninstall Roxio EZ CD first?

Also does Nero have a thing where I can right click on an Image on the internet and save it right away to a Disc like I can with Roxio?

Thank You.

"What is the "In CD" Part of Nero?"

It does ALMOST what DirectCD does. May not be "compatible" with DirectCD CDRW disks.

"I tried to install it and it says I must uninstall Roxio EZ CD first?"

Yes.

"Also does Nero have a thing where I can right click on an Image on the internet and save it right away to a Disc like I can with Roxio?"

No! That feature is not in Nero, but is provided by InCD (which comes with most Nero.) I can write the same thing about DirectCD. It's another part of a Roxi package.

In closing, I would NOT CHANGE this. In fact, I can't trust DirectCD, DLA, InCD and others since they are only 99.99% reliable. And since many don't keep a backup copy of their CDRW data, the disaster awaits those that didn't.

In CD is a part of Nero that allows you to save information using a formatted CD-RW. You can use the drag and drop method, send to option, download to the CD-RW drive and use the CD-RW as a portable drive. As far as I know, you can't have InCD and Direct CD installed on the same computer at the same time.

I had some problems using that feature, Roxio's Direct CD, for backing up my files. I found out the hard way that not all computers can read a formatted CD-RW created on another machine. Thank goodness it wasn't my only copy. I decided it much easier to simply burn a CD-R or an unformatted CD-RW for saving my "stuff".

I also have two USB portable drives that work great as a place away from the hard drive for temporary storage. I will often keep data on them until I get enough to burn a CD. They are easy to use and cheap.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
