(NT) Thanks,,,will do.
Did you're CD burner not come with software?
Yes it did.
It came with direct-cd about six years ago.
The problem is when you try to use a cd/rw it insist it must be formatted.
Which leads you into adaptec/udf/packet writing etc.
It's not that this does not function,,it does.
I was just looking for a small product that would allow me to erase/burn/no frills.
Something like the burning software that comes with XP.
Most Of Those Come With Easy CD Creator & DirectCD..
Are you sure your's didn't come with Easy CD Creator also? I've never seen burner software the ONLY came with DirectCD. Yes, DirectCD with throw up the option to format, but it's not a required task.
In order to burn a CD-R or CD-RW, you'll need to open the Easy CD Creator and burn the disk from the project window.
Hope this helps.
This is an OLD h.p. unit.
It came with hp cd-writer plus which has features like
I've yet to figure out a way to make any of those burn a file for me.
It also came with direct-cd which if you use a cd/rw insist that it must be formatted.
It's like this pkg was set up thinking everyone would use a cd/rw kind of like a floppy.
It does work it's just not what I want to do.
I suppose I could watch the sales and pick up a burner and software for 20 bucks.
Put the burner on the shelf.
Install the software and this issue would go away.
I've been poking around in my files and I find an ECDC help file but darned if I can find the prog.
It would seem that something did not get installed or something got removed.
Think I'll go poke around in the install cd.
Thanks for the tip about ECDC.
(NT) Bob, Yep, HP's CDWriter Usually Had ECDC AND DirectCD
Try this one
I have found DeepBurner to be a quick and uncomplicated program to use. I have ME but I'm sure it will work well with 98 too.
(NT) Thanks I'll look into that.
Find the free version at www.deepburner.com. System Requirements are:
CD-RW or DVD-RW drive
Microsoft Windows 98 / Me / 2000 or XP
at least 2 MB of free hard disk space for download and additional 10 MB for the installation. Further disk space for burning Audio-CDs of mp3-files is recommended
The free version does all the basic stuff, and the Pro version is only $25 if you need more.
Ordinary old Nero Express. Good as gold.If you can't find a freebie there's stacks on Ebay, cheap as chips.
I find it to be the best and tried just about all you can get both free and paid for.I use dual boot and use it on both winxp and win98.
(NT) Oops also very easy to use.
I have used this for years. Never a problem. I would highly recommend it.
