    Visual CD

    http://boozet.xepher.net/viscd/index.htm 2.18MB <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    Just downloaded this, but haven't test-driven yet...

    "Having difficulties to locate a file in which CD? Have you ever inserted and removed a CD from your CD ROM Drive few times before you finally found what you're looking for? What a pain! If so, Visual CD is the fast and easy way to help you out.

    With Visual CD you can catalog data CDs, floppy disks, hard drives, and folders. You can then explore the catalogs, search files and folders, create MP3 playlist without having the physical disks in the drive. Upon insertion of the corresponding disk, you can open files, split files into smaller pieces, extract ZIP, RAR and CAB archive, and more.

    Visual CD is extremely easy to use! With the Windows Explorer style, you will not find any difficulties to use it. Visual CD also support full Windows XP visual style and user friendly interface. Just try it and love it!"

    I was about to say it would have been a cool find to <!post=classify my CDs' contents,264803>classify my CDs' contents<!/post>, but just after trying it I noticed that the default action for JPG files had been set to File Split instead of Open. I don't know what other modification could have been made, because no longer had I noticed the changes than I uninstalled <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>. Apart from this, the program has a nice way to display CDs' contents: exports to HTML, CSV, TXT, and has an option to save the Tree.
    It doesn't limit to CDs: it'll work with any other drive as welll (ie, HDs).

    Thank you for the quick response, it is similar to many other cataloging programs and has the definite advantage of being free. 1Disk creates a virtual hard drive on your system and builds a database around the disk. If you have two or more folders on the removable media it combines them on this virtual hard disk in an explorer type window. You select the file you want and the software gives a dialog box asking for the media by whatever identifying number you had previously selected. I really wish it would work on Windows XP Home. Their tech support reckon it does????

    If you find anything please put up another post to this forum.
