View Full Version : Setting CDRom like alternative HDD

I have a progam that allows me to back up to CDRom. However I need to set it as an Alternat Hard Drive.
"Before you can back up to CD-R or CD-RW, you must configure your CD-ROM drive to work like an alternate hard disk drive. When you're done, you should be able to copy files from your hard disk drive to a CD-R or CD-RW"
Can aomeone explain to me as to how this is done.

It sounds like you need to put in a CD-RW and format it with the program that should have come with your CD-Writer. (Nero InCD or Direct CD etc)
Once it's formated you can use it like a big floppy disc (or small HDD).
