    Alright, I know this will be a noob question, but here goes:

    I just recently installed Windows 2000 Pro (from Windows XP Home). Now, in XP, I was used to the built in Roxio cd-rw software in Windows XP that enabled me to just send files to the CD-RW drive.

    I see that with 2000Pro, there is no built in cd-rw software built into the OS. Therefore, I have come to the following conclusion:

    I will definately need to add Burning software (i.e., Nero, Adaptec, Roxio, etc) in order to be able to burn CDs in 2000 Pro.

    Is this accurate? I guess, in the end, I miss the fact that I can right click on files and send it straight to the cd-rw, and apparently that is not an option in Win2k.

    Thanks for the time!

    That looks like what you will have to do. I would go with nero for direct burning although I don't use it.
