while nero is a quality cdrw package... i am running "steinberg instant
cd/dvd" and "instant backup" on my machines. 1 = win 98se 1 = win2K neither
of which have problems i can attribute to the cdrw s'ware.

direct cd has caused problems that you would not believe on every system
that i've seen it on. (.ddl issues, .vxd errors(?), ect)

i always try to give both pc's ALL resources while writing a cd... ended up
with too many "coasters" because of the buffer.

for what it's worth. ~joel
