    ick, don't use Window's packet writer.

    Did your cd-rw not include software?

    I've used this:

    It does work - seems to be a resource hog so don't surf for porn while using it.

    I didn't think WinXP even had a packet-writer. I thought it was just a basic multisession writer.

    Yeah there is.....IT F'ING SUCKS


    I'd had to agree with 5Gen_Prelude. CDBurnerXP would be the best way to go.
    However the users at SnapFiles seems to like DeepBurner (http://www.snapfiles.com/get/deepburner.html) would be better.

    If you just want to throw a bunch of files on a disc, the Windows CD Burner does fine. If you want to do anything more complicated than that, you'll need a different program. I like Roxio, but y'know, I'm not going to suggest it because I don't feel like getting flamed this morning.

    Nero has a 30-day free trial offer. If you just need it temporarily I think Nero should work just fine for you.

    x2 on the Windows CD writer. It works fine if you only need to put a few files on a disc.

    I also use Roxio and have no problems with it. Besides the CD/DVD burning apps, I also use some of the video capturing/editing programs too. I've used Nero too, but I don't care for it.
