Windows itself can burn to cd media. How big are the files your trying to write??? If you going to be moving data back and forth you should best look at a flash stick if they will work better. I know they are now up to 32G now and around 130 US $$. InCD and DirectCD are incompatible as you noticed and from my experiences with InCD didn't help much and worse most people said it is useless format and I couldn't agree more with it. But I wait and see what your response is on how big your file or data you trying to from computer to computer???
