I've just gotten into packet writing of CDRWs, and finding myself back
in usenet looking for answers... (yes, I did read the FAQ & other ref
- Why do the different packet writing tools seem to be so incompatible
with each other? Is there a problem getting all involved on the same
- Is there one PW tool or standard that looks to be taking over as the
* or most popular one?
- Is there any OS that can properly write PW CDRW natively, un such a
way that the incompatibilities between Roxio & INCD etc are eliminated?
- Why doesn't Win XP or even 2K have built in support for this? Is it
THAT new a technology?
- I've been using INCD that came with my LG CDRW drive. I find it rather
strange (yet not impossible) that this technology is so immature that in
order for anyone else to read that CD, they must have a custom driver
installed on their machine. How then does one read that data on a
machine they don't have admin rights to?
- Can the driver installed on reader machines to access the PW CDRW data
cause any problems when reading regular CDR CDs? or other CDRW ones?
- We just had some major "fun" trying to get a packet written CDRW disc
of mine read by some CDROM drives at a friends place. It seems
reasonable that the older drives couldn't cope - but one was a 52x - is
that not recent enough to be able to read such a disc?
Heck... I even had my own machine (that wrote the disc) tell me that it
was in a foreign format (on re-insertion), and that I'd need to install
the driver to read it. Reinserted the disc, & it then worked fine.
Crikey, I thought the whole buffer underrun problem with older CDR
drives was bad enough - little did I know what hassles were ahead of me.
