Adaptec CD-burning software: Make it compatible with XP

This tip was submitted to the SearchWin2000.com tip exchange by member Daniel Clarkson. Please let other users know how useful it is by rating it below.

Windows XP is reportedly incompatible with Easy CD Creator 4 and DirectCD. But I have found that while DirectCD doesn't work in read/write mode, there is a software download available on the Roxio Web site that enables reading of DirectCD written CDs on Windows XP.

As far as incompatibility with Easy CD Creator 4, there is no problem if DirectCD is not installed. In fact, you can continue to use Easy CD Creator to burn single or multi-session CDs without any problems if it is not installed.
