For a while now I've been trying to find a descent packet writing proggy for win2K.
I'm so deep into it now it has become a little research project.
1) Adaptec/roxio DirectCD 5.xx (w*w.roxio.com) - No good (Don't like Adaptec/Roxio)
2) Nero Ahead IncD 2.xx (w*w.nero.com)- No good. though an excellent prog, it is sometimes very buggy more so on Win2K, plus of all the burning prog's in existence it is the least compatable with (surprise surprise) Nero itself 5.5.x
3) CeQuadrat PacketCD - my prog of choise for Win98. doesn't work on Win2K.
4) NTI FileCD 1.7.2 (w*w.ntius.com) - works just fine with win2K. but it is a little strange for me (How the hell do you drag or copy back from the cdrw to the 'puters hard drive?) plus you can not run/execute a file thats on the cd like you can with other similar prog's (for example run an exe file thats on the cdrw)
5) SimpliCD 1.0 (w*w.oaktech.com) - This prog is so new only version 1.0 is out, plus there is no downloadable demo available yet. from tests and reviews it seems very promissing
6) RSJ CD Writer 2.12 for Windows 2000 (w*w.rsj.de/stage/en/default.asp)
In a way it is the ultimate packet writing program. why? because it performs just like packet writing only it is not really packet writing (UDF) it is more like regular writing meaning it should be readable on any regular cd reader, and on a CD-RW it performs like the ultimate Packet writing program.
The demo is fully functional for 30 days and the proggy works fantastic. if it wasn't so expensive (Over $110 USD) I would have purchased it already. (OK I admit, so far I couldn't find a crack for it :))
