View Full Version : CD-R Software

I read here that a lot of people don't seem to like Adaptec as a CD-burner program. Just wondering, if I dump Adaptec in favour of something else (always looking for better programs) will CD-RW's written with Adaptec still be readable with another program?

Once a cd is written, most all cd readers can read it regardless of the software used.
If you are talking about formatting and re-writing to a cd that has been burnt using adaptec, then yes the same principle applies. It is not encoded with a special adaptec fingerprint :)

Personally I use Nero and CloneCD. It really is only a matter of preference.

Nero does it all, but you have to un-install any other burn progs - especially Adaptec before installing Nero
