I just bought and installed a LTR-240102B and it works fine with Direct CD. I bought Easy CD 5.0 platinum and ran the upgrade to 5.01d OK.
I have a CD-ROM drive also that came with the puter. I load a music CD in that drive and want to copy x songs onto the burner. Soundstream insists on copying to the HD first and man is that slow! Why does it insist on doing this and is there a better way to accomplish this simple copying of a few songs from several CD’s?
