I have some questions concerning CD-RWs.
I have a computer with a CD-R drive a new computer with a CD-RW drive (Lite-On 52-24-52 ‘LTR - 52246S’) and a couple CD-RWs (FujiFilm CD-RW 74min 650mb 4x multispeed). May I start writting to this CD-RW on a CD-R dirve? If so, where can I go from there, will I be able to RW on my Lite-On at that point or will that first write limit the disk to write once? I have Nero, though I can use other burning software if recommended, I recently got Alcohol though have never used it.
What about formatting the disk so you copy to it as you would a HDD or floppy, (using Roxio DirectCD or Nero if it has a similar utility/whatever is recommended) what would I be able to do with it then? Is there any way to get a CD-RW disk, with data on it, back to a condition that it may be written on with a CD-R burner?
Naturally many of the above questions may be non-applicable. Also, I will later have other RW disks, this is just what I have right now and only three with a lot of data on my older comp I need to remove, so I would rather not coast any. Basically I need an efficient way of taking large amounts of data off one comp to place on another comp w/o internet/network (I am trying to get a router soon).
I do not currently have the kind of time I would like to research this, I wouldn’t be surprised if much of this has already been discussed, if so, kindly pointing me to a previous thread would be appreciated. Any resources, links, experiences, summaries, or relating nfo would be appreciated. Thx.
