I have a new system with a HP 630 DVD R+/- & RW+/- I want to be able to use a blank DVD for storing data, but I was hoping I could use it like a floppy or packet writing. The HP techs told me I should just be able to drag and drop right from the desktop without the need to format the DVD for packet Writing. I think he is wrong, and thus why it isn;t working. That said, what software will work for what I am trying to do? I t came installed with Sonic Record Now and thats for audio ONLY, and InterWIN for DVD video files ONLY. I'd hate like hell to have to go back to Roxio or Nero just for these purposes, but hopefully on XP they got their act together. Any recommendations would be suitable.
