View Full Version : WinXP CD-RW writing Q: and other stuff

01-02-2002, 07:34 PM
With Windows XP's built in CD writing, is there a way to write to a CD-RW without via packet writing?

Also, when I installed it, "Windows XP Home Edition Version 2600" appears in the lower right hand corner, like this is some pre-release copy or something (I picked it up in a store). How do I disable the text? Thanks.

(And yes, this is a cross-post.:p)

I don't believe you can, buckeye...

The CD-R build-in with XP was nbot designed for either speed, or for cd-to-cd copy.

Your best bet would be a third-party software. I use Nero 5.5 on my XP machine, and it runs beautifully...

I have no idea what you're saying, KordKelly. I do plan on getting good software, but I just need a band-aid for now.

And thanks digl, it worked great!

good to know that it worked :)

I think KordKelly means that you shouldnt use the built in cd writing :)

I'm not duplicating CD's, and I don't follow the either speed part. I just want to write to a CD-RW without packets.

I should be getting software soon, though. :)
