    CD in Explorer

    What do I need to do to be able to access my CDRWs from eith my CDR or CDRW when I'm in Explorer? I can read ones that are recorded, but I can't write to them...

    Is there a way?

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Are you using software that allows you to rewrite to the CDs? You can burn onto a CD-RW disc, but to make it work in rewritable fashion, you need something like InCD or DirectCD that supports packet writing.

    I have Nero... will either of those you mention allow "direct" writes -- (like a floppy)?

    Yes, InCD is part of Nero and should do exactly what you want. You will have to format the CD-RW first, and the InCD service will need to be running to access it in the manner of a floppy. With that in mind, you should be ready to go!

    Now is there an "easy" way to make a CD bootable?

    Easy? Depends on what you want to do with the CD. Nero can create bootable CDs using any one of the available methods it provides natively, such as floppy emulation. I have a bootable DOS CD that I created this way.

    If you are making a bootable Windows CD, the process requires a little more effort. You will need the boot sector file and the settings for it to work properly. Search with Google for bootable Windows CD and you will find plenty of sites that tell you the detailed steps. And of course, if you find them a little confusing, you can always post here!
