Adaptec does make recording devices, you're obviously mistaken.
What I want to know is, is there some kind of program I can download for free , so I can write data onto a blank DVD disc.
I'm don't care about movies or DivX or anything like that. I just want to throw a bunch of old files onto a DVD disc because it can hold more information than a CD, and considering I also have the disc's right here.
AFAIK, Adaptec doesn't make any writers, only interface cards...
Furthermore, Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4 isn't a CD writer, it's a program that can be used to write cd's with. It's very old and extremely crappy by the way.
In order to write a DATA-DVD you need a couple of things:
1. A PC
2. A DVD writer (that's something different than a CD writer!!!!)
3. DVD writing software
As you say you only want to burn a couple of files, you could use a demo of a certain product. Let's pick Nero (very popular, good allround burning program). Go to www.ahead.com and download the free trial.
