I am new to the CD Freaks forum and to DVD burning, but not to CD burning or the CD Freaks site. Most of the real techie stuff is beyond me, though.
I just got a new computer (Windows XP) and am setting it up with the software I need.
Until now I have used Easy CD Creator 4 to make my CDs. I know it's really old, but I never felt the need to upgrade. But my new computer has a DVD recorder that this old program will not support.
I thought about jumping up to Easy Media Creator 8. However, Roxio is terrible about backwards-compatibility. They abandoned the *.cl4 format with Easy CD Creator 5, and have changed formats at least once more since then.
I have a lot of disc images in the *.cl4 format that I would like to keep, and I am wondering if there is ANY other program out there that supports *.cl4--perhaps a freeware program or something? It's probably a long shot, but I thought I'd give it a try. I remember losing some stuff in the switch from *.cl3 to *.cl4--it's a real pain.
As for the future, I will probably go the freeware route for my future CD and DVD burning needs. I'm looking around here to see what the preferred programs are.
Thanks for reading this.
