Just got my new comp with my first burner, and I have yet to figure several things out. Here're my questions/problems: First, my computer came with Roxio EZ CD creator 5.3, a Mitsumi DVD drive, and a Lite-On LTR 48246s 48x/24x/48x CD-RW, and runs windows XP Home. I downloaded the windows update patch that says it addresses CD burning issues in windows xp. 1. How do I set up a CD-RW disk to function as a zip disk, where I can use synchonizing software to backup my files easily? Is there some special software I have to use? 2. How come when I tell EZ CD creator to copy a game CD (I tried Max Payne), it seems to start copying ok, then hits an error? I tried this twice with 2 CD-Rs, and both are now unusable. The errors for each were exactly the same, and occured at the same sectors. 3. How come when I tell CloneCD to read a game CD to an image file it sometimes says it will take 3 hours, but with other discs it takes just a few minutes? 4. What, exactly does Clony do? What's the difference between Clony, Clony XL, and Clony XXL? Do I need to use them? 5. What are ASPI drivers? Clony XXL said it need them, so I downloaded the 4.71 version from adaptec and installed it, but now when I start Clony XXL, it gives an error every time, saying this may be caused by bad ASPI drivers. I don't think I have SCSI drives on my system; are the ASPI drivers only for SCSI? How do I remove ASPI drivers? 6. Why won't my CD-RW drive recognize a 1.3gb double density CD-RW disc? Thanks! BTW, if I'm being stupid and ignoring a FAQ that answers all these questions, I'll kick myself for you all. But please be kind enough to show me where that FAQ is!
