how to burn a CD to the hard drive Nero or EZCDCreator

by Tasuki / December 27, 2007 1:58 PM PST

Hi everyone, Hope I've got the right forum for asking this question. I've got version 6 of both Nero and Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator. I've looked over the instructions and menu options, and I can't find any option for burning the contents of a CD to the hard drive. I've got some data and some music on different CDs that I'd really like to put on a hard drive, but I can't figure out any way to do it with either of the two programs I have. Any help much appreciated. Thanks, Taz

So why not use Explorer.

Open up views of the CD/DVD and another to where you want those files. Copy them there.

windows explorer I presume, not Internet Explorer

My apologies, I should have researched this better. I had tried in the past to use Windows Explorer to copy data files from a CD to the hard drive, and I'd gotten a weird file name with exactly 1 kb in the file. Now, for some reason, when I try it, it works perfectly. No clue what went wrong before. Of course this technique doesn't work for music files--at least when I do it, I get a file size of 1 kb and no music transfer, but ripping works for this purpose.
Anyway, I try to research my questions before posting them to CNET, but obviously this time I goofed.

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?
