Get EZCD Creator 5.1 Platinum (or 5.0 with the 5.1 upgrade) Direct CD works reliably. All the bugs have been worked out. I've used it for several months without a single problem.
If you install 5.0, use the custom installation and DO NOT install Take Two. There are known compatibility issues with XP. 5.1 uninstalls it, at any rate. Ignore the error messages and just install 5.1 on top of it. All will be well if your system is healthy.
I've had too many problems with DirectCD ruining my CDs to reccomend it. And most DirectCD-created CDs arent readable by just any computer, they're very, VERY picky.
Heck...I cant even get other drives in the same computer to read them!
The thing that I didn't like about Nero, at least under Win 98, was that whenever they issued a new version of InCD, you couldn't read the CDRW's made with previous versions. There was no backward compatibility...maybe I missed something.
Direct CD has always been backward compatible and will now even read InCD CDRW's. I've stopped experimenting and have settled on Direct CD for better or worse.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
