    Default probably super simple but (writing to cd)

    Hi,

    I am wondering how exactly do i use a cd-r as a normal floppy? The only burning software i have is nero express. Running on Windows XP.

    Microsoft word is my word processor.

    Thanks,
    dave.

    Well you could use Nero, if u keep the multisession open. Other than that, you could use INCD (which is a separate install from Nero, on their site), or DirectCD, which is part of CD Creator...

    BUT not INCD and DirectCD together. As they dont really like each other. XP has its own cd burning stuff. BUT it isnt that great.


    Or you could check this out. Its free. http://www.cdburnerxp.se/

    And remember that it's not a "floppy". If you save files on such a CD, it can't be read on another computer unless it has the same software on it.

    >Other than that, you could use INCD
    As far as I'm aware INCD will not write to CDR
    Best option is crank up Nero Express (have CDR in drive) Select Data>Data Disc> here you will see any files already on the CD, select Add, browse for the file > next, make sure Alow files to added later is ticked then Burn it.
    As already stated you won't be able to read the CD on another machine unless it has Nero installed as well.
    Why not make it easy & buy a CDRW disc then you can right click & send to.. or simply drag & drop using INCD

    If you have a drive that supports Mt Rainer and an OS that also supports it (currently no versions of windows) its very easy to use a CD-R as a floppy. Its expected that longhorn will have support for Mt Rainer, alot of Linux distros already have support.

    Right click it and choose "send to" and then select your cd drive,this wil cache the files and you can either burn these to cd at that time or keep on adding to the cache untill you have enough to make better use of your cd.
