After reading this topic, I'm interested in Nero to replace Easy CD Creator. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=91829 My actual Easy CD Creator isn't legit and I'm removing all my illegal softwares systematically and this is the second last one. DirectCD comes with Easy CD Creator 5 Platinium, I'm very sure about that, because I use that software. InCD comes with Nero and I ASSUME that InCD works exactly like directCD, at least according my readings. What I like about directCD is the use of a CD (in drive D: ) like a diskette (in drive A: ) with the same possibilities, especially the use of copy/paste in Windows Explorer without burning CD's. 1. Question #1 : I have many CD-RW's, which are formatted with directCD. In fact I use directCD as a backup for my personal files, because I don't have a professional backup system and I don't really need one, not on my home computer. Can I read and write directCD-RW's with Nero InCD or do I have to start all over again ? 2. Question #2 : Formatting a CD-RW with directCD takes a very long time (more than 20 minutes). Is Nero InCD any better or just the same ? 3. Question #3 : Is using directCD/InCD as technical safe as burning a CD or is there a difference ? 4. Question #4 : DirectCD-RW's have a capacity of 533 MB in stead of 650 MB due to the directCD formatting. That's not a problem for me. However, I heard (I don't know if it is true) that a directCD-RW has the same capacity (650 MB) as a normal CD, when your OS = winXP and not win2000proSP4, which I use at this moment. Is that true ? 5. Question #5 : I'm also planning to read and write on DVD in the future after buying a new computer. Is Nero able to read and write on DVD and can I use InCD to use a DVD as a diskette (in drive A: ) ? Just share your experiences or knowledge, whatever it is, I will appreciated it. Most of my questions aren't really answered any where.
