While CDBURNERXP is free and works with DVD media, you can also brush up on what the native XP offers at http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.php
I'm unsure what the other content in your post is about. Why not use what you like?
Hi all! I am fairly new to the world of WINDOWS XP but it is a small step away from the Mac Os Tiger in Simlplicity. I bought a barely HP DV1315cl (google the name for full specs) which by the way I am VERY happy with to replace my "vintage" Ibook 800mhz. You know how you can drag and drop data files in Windows Explorer for Writable and Re-Writable CD's? I was wondering if you can do the same thing with DVD's. Also when I pop-in a DVD +/- either or they are reconized as a CD with 0 bytes. Is there like a plugin or something included with software E.g. Nero to enable this? Please Help.
